Could Be Competition

“can you make it rain harder”

(Prince – before the Super Bowl)

the world don’t behave

and why not

what else is there to be

but transformed?


nothing compares


pressure applied/mounting

couldn’t make anything



when the lakes rose, doves found higher ground. there are tiers. places to rise to.


it’s not all symbols,

symbolic, symbolism

but maybe it is. if so, own it. that’s how freedom works. it’s how bats become bigger than the night. how an echo becomes the cave. how in and out transcend placement.


and how does an elevator

have the strength to

carry on?


what will it take to coax a cessation out of death?


as if life

ever had a choice

there’s no other king in town


ain’t got no money

working part-time

pretending the rest


a little much

. . .

what’s the other?


the max,

the morning papers,

the moonlight

who can’t be asked

anything anymore the way it used to when it was cherry

and only a red corvette could be
