From the album 'Gonwards' released on the Ape House label October 2012



Dissecting a cat.
Where is its pep?
Coins made of water
are hard to pick up.

With ink eradicator
I altered my grades.
Satirically yet
I altered the world.

Streetcars passed
the ballpark.
Daydreaming in
the outfield I was
beaned by a pop fly.

I saw suffering saints
and Christlike figures
descending from trams.

Down from a cloud
with a clang he fell,
Jacques Cousteau
in a diving bell.

I electroplated radiators
to defray the costs of my
father's failing farm.

In an era of
discrimination survival
tactics are required:

Fly through the
clouds on vacuum cleaners
with male companions.

With females it's more
a matter of moonlight canoeing.

Do spark plugs think?
