it was the firecracker explody

The Snake Pope: Do firecrackers usually pop when put in water

Me: This one does when she gets wet

 

my mind throttled

was wound tighter

by the hour

even her shadow

was star spangled

in the warrior night

she wore many smiles

now these things

are plain to see

her skirt was way

too tight that day

in her smile was

a spark she used

to light the hour

 

don’t mind if I do bar-b-q

I like salmon

If she were a fish

I’d wrap her in shiny foil

and slap her on the grill

but she’s not a fish so I just going to let her

lay there naked

diamonds are formed
deep within the earth
under tremendous pressure
under just the right conditions
starting with a lump of carbon
a lump of coal if you like
over time and under pressure
but given even more right conditions
the earth ceases to apply pressure
the piece of coal applies
the pressure to herself
because she can feel herself
becoming a diamond
she knows in her mind
and in her heart
that she is a diamond
and that going forward
nothing can stop her
from reaching the destiny
of her true beauty

I grew up in the hills

of Oakland as a young boy

collecting butterflies

so my butterfly knowledge

is more than most

ok.. more than anyone

I know

ok… more than anyone

anyone knows

the Viceroy Butterfly looks

like a Monarch Butterfly

but is not a Monarch

I can’t tell them apart

it would be hard to tell

unless you were a butterfly expert

for those of us who are

not butterfly experts

it doesn’t matter

she’s still the perfect butterfly
