HOOKIS pOOKIS

It is true that those
who suddenly disperse
keep us
forever in suspense?
RISE TABLE RISE
 
Oh Reverend pedro Houdini
hoovers somewhere above
Mexico, and Texas
awaiting a drop
 
Sandwiched in a cloud
peter pedro pietri
in a trance
caught the lift to
the next dimension
 
perchance some poet’s paradise
where refer and laughter
and liquid dreams
melt into DOWOPs
his national anthem
in Spanglish sung by his handsome
bad ass self and reverberates through radical time
 
3 races --- braided together
a mono superstar exemplifies a future bred of the future
and he
 
A simple condom thrower
a poem bearing joe
Un poet laureate down on the planeta
nuevo york when he left town
and said to keep his seat warm
 
Sombrero Zorro stares at us from behind
marbled eyes, clothed in somber black
Bops into position... HEY, MAN
WHAT’s U... I mean, what’s doing DOWN ... in other words (or worlds)
can you tell me
where can I find some COOOOOOKIE
Snap
potttttttt!
 
Man, is it ever boring
Up here, or this down?
And, do you think I can get a pass for thinking naughty
the SILENCE is KILLING me
Me ESTAS MATANDO!
 
he laughs
and laughs
and laughs
