Page 103 Puzzles And Circles

 

Hollywood and Wilcox trying to understand

Dark clouds and tour buses raining their brand

Siamese twins barking like seals for a dollar

Wrinkled old man down in the squalor

Sirens go by as hustlers sling dirty words

Hollywood’s a poem crazy and absurd

Up and down the street blows a golden peace

Up and down the hills roams the filthy beast

Sidewalk cafe changing her name

Fingers on the keyboard playing the game

Puzzles and circles brand new paint

Cops on horseback worshiping a saint

Puzzles and circles Hollywood fear

Tourists with money wasted on beer

Puzzles and circles sun going down

DJ’s spinning the same old sound

Just Josh and me

rather Josh and I

yearned for a beer

and that’s all

to talk

of things

demons

dragons

heroes

villains

The Pig and Whistle

didn’t mind

One half beer later

Andy and friend strolled by

Josh knew what to do

My head spun twice

Andy took the stool next to mine

Long lost brother

although the prodigal

He took the liberty of visiting

our souls

By the 2nd round

we were all

pals, comrades, confidants

patrons, backers, self-creators

We told stories

sang songs

we laughed

leaving, I apologized

Josh carried on

Andy was happy

Page 131 Boulevard Marine Layer Cake

 

Hollywood-Palms-With-Morning-Fog-1

 

Cold and heavy

gray wet loneliness

blankets the low sky

silver buffalo herds of ocean magic

spread their dull ghost hooves

across a willing sky

The boulevard’s cake bakes in a

chilly oven:

spoon sauce candy

ancient thought squares

marble top misery

short skirt misery

disappearing autos

yellow fog eyes

green man (and bicycle)

pizza window glow

street sweeper howl

keys locks of hope

tiny ball of sunshine

BUFFALO HERD RETREATS

little darling, little darling

too late, too late

the cake is all gone

STOLEN
