Frankenstein Father’s Day

28

Frankenstein was created by a mad scientist.

He was mad when Frankenstein would misplace his car keys.

He was mad when Frankenstein used up all the hot water during his shower.

He was mad when Frankenstein drank out of the open milk carton in

the refrigerator.

Frankenstein wanted the scientist to stop being so mad.

So on Father’s Day he snuck up behind him and gave him a great big bear hug.

Unfortunately, Frankenstein wasn’t able to control his super-monster strength

And he squeezed too hard and the scientist’s eye’s popped out.

At least he’s not mad anymore.

Dad opens another present.

It’s a red tie.

Dad says: “Great. I can always use another tie.”

Dad thinks: “What the hell am I going to do with a tie I slither along the ground?!”

Dad opens another present.

It’s a  blue tie

Dad says: “Great. No one can ever have too many ties.”

Dad thinks: “Has anyone in my family ever actually seen me where a tie?!!”

Dad opens another present.

It’s a pair of cowboy boots.

Made of snake skin.

Mom:“He was ran over this morning. It’s your boss.”

Dad: “This is the best Father’s Day ever!!”

 

the black tide

the black tide comes
the black tide goes
when you’re feeling down
sucks you from the beach
takes you for the swim
drops you to the ocean floor
holds you under until you drown

the fear rolls over you
watch out or the tsunami
of pain will break you
pulls you under takes you
under will take you down
the alligator death roll
holds you under until you drown

my scorpion lover

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE

he drinks dynamite
from a little paper cup
she drinks the heavens
drinks it right up
stars and sun
moonshine
she’s got tumbling dice in her walk
clicky spurs on her cowgirl boots
click click click
time bomb in her hourglass
black widow red hourglass
against the infinite black of night
smile
turn your head
whiplash
in your bed
whiplash
she
you better rub this leopard
hard if you want her to go spotless
forgot my birthday gift boy
downright thoughtless
ready for church in my Sunday best
when I go crotchless
I’m your scorpion lover
run for cover
my clit is my stinger
if you don’t believe me boy
give me the finger

 

 

 

 

the snake in your apple tree

hello do you know me
I’m the snake
in your apple tree
things changed
when I slipped Eve
my apple
and knowledge
set her free

now she’s tattooed
like a road map
the truth is there
for all to see
the map leads
to her future
somewhere between
the devil and
the deep blue sea

when you think
you’re going where
you mind is leading you
remember that knowledge
came from me
and when the rest of Eden
burns to the ground
I will still be
in my apple tree

death seeks out
some people
and some people
seek out death
more directly
they throw the
dice and the dice
come up snake eyes
every time
but they slip through
the death’s fingers
like grabbing a
handful of water
death looks down at
his cold, wet, empty
palm at the
unexplainable
and a chill runs
down death’s spine
for there are some things
to fear more than death
and there are some things
that even death fears
for death is
explainable
and death
is not a fool

if my tears
were blood
I would have bled
to death
years ago

Who does Satan fear?
Who does God fear for that matter?

They are constrained
each
by appropriate rules of behavior

I am not

they are finite
and I have never gone away
I am the dirt in the cracks
of the sidewalk
that allows weeds
to grow
and I am
not finite

if you need
a bread-trail home
you can find me
on the other side
of the universe
for what I am
has nothing to do
with me

and it is not finite
