    Topic / Title:
    "Almond Island"

    she wasn’t a warrior until
    the dawn sang
    in an almond patch
    from the sunken island

    the rest of it is lies
    like how the moon
    promised
    me and my twin sister
    a cherry pie



    PS. This nice woman later gave me an enormous yellow-orange heirloom tomato and some smaller weirdshaped tomatoes (farmer’s market).

    title/topic: a girl named brenda with a cat named momo

    her hair is like pasta
    her eyes are like pizza
    her imagination is like
     the film, fight club

    there is no way to say it
    many have tried
    they have severed their tongues
    lost all context in time

      these are passing thoughts,
       vignettes; portraits
       oozing from momo’s mind
       momo will be remembered
       as the universe’s creator
       who dreamed us up
       while batting yarn
       as not to appear suspect

    topic: alana & merritt are getting married today. i’m going to read your poem about them at the wedding, where i’m going right now. i have to go move my car, i’ll be right back.

    alana & merritt

    two unlike any two
    they’ve soared the skies already
    redefining the magic carpet

    they are their own app
    undownloadable

    when the moon is full
    it shines on them envious
    the moon is envious
    their love is brighter

    brightest of loves
    almost irritating how bright
    blinding
    everything is fading
    everyone at this wedding
     is going blind

    am i a bad person for making this deliberately bad? it made me laugh as he walked away, thinking maybe this guy will actually read about how the bride and groom are literally making everyone there go blind with their love. if he actually read this, there is hope for our future. love is the leading cause of blindness at weddings.

    title/topic: salvation

    the lizard said
    to the passing jogger:

    behold my flickering tongue
    a meaning beyond your tepid flesh
    the original spark

    and at the center of the sun
    a squirt, and it said:

    the fleshy jogger hears not
    oh lizard of the wilderness
    i, in the sun’s center hear ye,
    and your flicker is good.

    the jogger bent
    tying his shoe
    swatted a fly - missed
     salvation.

    Topic/Title: the ocean

    rumor has it
    there is a woman
    stuck at the bottom
    immortal
    made of gold
    trying on each full moon
    to find her lost son

    if you sit at the harbor
    on a full moon
    silence your mind
    put it on vibrate
    you can hear her shrill
    heart pulverizing cries

    rumor has it

  6. Having 1,000 Tumblr followers makes me happier than I was after making and eating the following for breakfast this morning:

    -Two toasted pieces of extremely fancy whole grain bread
    -Red roasted pepper hummus on the bread
    -Carmelized onions and jalapenos cooked in olive oil and black pepper over lettuce on said hummus’d toast
    -Local organic Japanese tomatoe and local organic Godzilla sized avocado somewhat on said bread-mess, somewhat on the plate for practicality
    -Two over easy eggs on top of the pile of things on the toasted bread
    -Loose leaf fancy green tea my housemate “gets for free” from the Chinese herbalist clinic where he works in a fancy kung fu pot, sipped from cute/tiny little cup things

    Nevermind. That breakfast was way better than Tumblr followers.

    Should I not say that? Is that mean? Oh well.

    WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST THIS MORNING?

    flowers are informants
    in a grand plot

    dolphins fly into space
    gather information about us

    intercepting our texts
    the NSA is no problem

    you dip your nose
    oh, what a nice smell

    this flower knows your secrets
    how you fantasize your crush

    the flowers are on to us
    and there is no escape
