magic kingdom

as snowbirds go south
i chart the weather

there is a flesh eating bacteria
in the overly warm
petrie dish waters
surrounding florida

vibrio vilifinicus

which in latin means
“horse dick with teeth”

the mosquitoes there
are registered sex offenders
with a record in the west nile

because of this
denizens of the sunshine state
must sit in screened cages in the evening
they so delicately refer to as a
the hawaiian word for
“screened in porch on swamp shack”

big sugar and their lobbyists
are balls deep up seminole ass

shoreline decreasing by the year

oranges juice is undergoing genocide

bees are dying
legs blown off
in the rice paddies of hanoi

alligators are more confused than chaz bono

soon all that will be left
of the penis
of these great united states

is disney world island
where everything is perfect
for a price

magic fucking kingdom

february 2cd

(cue booming hollow sports announcer voice)


ground hog day
on which
punxsutawney phil saw his fictitious shadow
in the epicenter
of manufactured battles
man vs. weather
man vs. processed cheese polymer
man vs. traumatic brain and spinal cord injury

my war
is that my personal health is at a tipping point
the choices i make now
will determine the length of my life
and my overall wellness

2014 must be the year i stop
abusing myself
with smoke
with drink
with bad jobs
with bad men

my sons are 18 now
i choose to see them live as flourishing men

i want to put my best face forward
for the coming apocalypse

this leaves me with only one drug


my sword dipped in ink

in the contest between good and evil
good wins

know why?
kisses from children
and puppies

but even they won’t stop the earth
from feeling the need to
cure itself of us

we are coming to our unpollinated end

so all you lesser demons can fuck off
