WORDS

(’04/’18) (had to disguise a four-letter word
below, otherwise FB might throw me under their
self-driving vehicle.)

– “Inertia”
doesn’t move me…

– “Caramba!” means
what you think it should.

genderwise, can be otherwise.

means money,
as in ‘Hi, gringo!’

– “S _ _ t”
will eventually be legalized.

TSUNAMI

(12/’04) HUGE tsunami in Asia around
Christmas… many thousands perished.

/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/+/

-Mother Nature unleashed…

-Giant waves of ocean, debris,
bodies, rocks, mud, trees…
100,000 scream in unison,
“Run for your lives!”

-Families, neighborhoods,
animals, traditions… destroyed.
Horrible way to end the year!

-The gods, they must be
very angry, yes?

HOLD THE MAYO!

(’91) – I wrote this during one of my 38 visits
to UCLA Medical Center for radiation treatments
against the Big C, prostatewise. (I won a temporary
reprieve.)

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////>>

-Death…

-A patient crocodile
in my private lagoon,
eyes the feast…

-Poet meat,
pre-seasoned delicacy,
to be served rare
a molecule at a time,
hope by hope,
despair by despair.

LAST POEM

(’09) – When I wrote this the end of the world
was imminent… I guess it didn’t happen.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////>>

-This is it!

-In a few minutes…
Supernova time!

-Goodbye, lifetime of memories,
family, friends, enemies…
goodbye stupid dreams of money
& glory & half-finished works…

-Goodbye hunger, greed,
abuse, filth, oppression,
deceit, hatred, fear,
war, pestilence…

-Goodbye love, beauty…

-Goodbye to the
horrors of humanity.

-Thank you, Earth!
