the fires burn

with an

insatiable

appetite

consuming

 

all fuel

including

homes

that are

in the way

 

the sun

glows a deep

red orange

the smoke

creates

a sunset

 

like the

sky too

is on fire

 

a woman

must decide

which of her

horses she

can take

in her trailer

 

and which

she must leave

to burn

…and how’s your day been

Mine’s been good thanks for asking.

 

In Silicon Valley just wrapped up

6-weeks of 12-hour days 7-days a week

to complete a chip design we have been

working on for almost 2-years

We are now “done.”

(Please God…let us be “done”.)

No more “texts” at mid-night saying…

“We’re not done.”

 

I could use a month’s sleep.

 

A couple nights ago…

(Yeah, I did mention this was the Silicon Valley…)

About 40-yards across the apartment complex

from me there was an organized crime

execution style hit.

 

Yes, people were actually tied up and one was shot

in the back of the head.

 

It’s more surreal than any of my writing.

 

I hope you…I hope everyone had a good day.

 

Here’s a bit of the police reporting.

something wicked this way comes

I am the Ezekiel wind
I am the Prodigal son
I am he cat with 10 lives
I am the Mother
of all Mother-F*ckers
I am the one
and when you’re in heat
I’ll bring the heat
you can load
and unload my gun
and when you’re feeling
unloved and unruly
I’ll tattoo your world
and sign it
LOVE
from yours truly
because you are the one
by the pricking of my thumbs
something wicked this way comes

She: You better Daddy…

Tip Well the Executioner

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE

rise with
the sun in the
morning and by
noon be buried
with your
boots on

tap dance
backwards
on the head
of a pin in
an alternate
universe

lay with your
ear on
the rail
and you will
hear the train
coming

tip well the
executioner
if you
desire
a clean axe
swing

lay with your
ear on
the rail
and you will
hear the train
coming

Species Change

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE

One day I got tired of being my species,
so I reapplied to become a racoon.

They made me wear one of those little bandit
black eye masks when I filled out the form.

They provided lunch, but I had to wash it in the stream
before I ate it.

When they asked for my emergency contact information
I gave them the address of my brother who had become a badger.

After reciting the pledge of allegiance,
they closed the ceremony by allowing us to select a pinata
to take home with us.

When my brother became a badger he received a Chia pet.

That’s because the badger and racoon are different species.

When our mother arrived for Thanksgiving she was greeted by my pinata
and my brother’s Chia pet in the front hall.

She was proud.

Proud that she was not same species as me or my brother.

Werewolf Roommate

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE

I recently took in a roommate to help make ends meet.

He’s werewolf.

 

He seemed like an OK guy.

I checked his references.

Plus, he was Presbyterian.

Seemed like a pretty safe bet.

 

But the damn guy isn’t house broken.

Goes to the bathroom all over carpet

everywhere in the apartment.

 

I tried to break him of the habit by holding his nose in it

and giving him a good whack with a rolled up newspaper,

but this isn’t producing any results.

 

And the cops are actually threatening to file charges against me!

 

It’s a funny world we live in.

Then I remembered we had the same problem with one

of our dogs when I was a kid.

 

I remembered the newspaper

didn’t work in that case either.

 

So last night when my roommate was asleep

I had a vet come over and had him neutered.

Now we’ll see if he wants to go to the bathroom

on the carpet when he wakes up!
