"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

*this poem is not about woody allen’s mother

the purgatorio of dante   hellfire pecking

this purgatory  forest fires blazing  hearts inflamed

lungscorch too

 

so who’s

to blame

me?

u?

or  sparks from a fast moving train  ?

 

this yarn is not about climate change

it’s about    the inbetween

 

the place between  knowing   being lost

being found  +profoundly following your

dyingheartflame

 

not the thickheaded  monsterbrain

who says:  take the road u know          ad nauseam

 

don’t go out in the snow

don’t go out if it’s hot

DON’T GO OUT EVER         EVVVVVVER  

 

did i mention EVER?

 

wait!  this is not your brain’s voice   it’s that giant

disembodied motherhead  floating over bathurst st.

 

my kids love me so much  they pay a shrink  + talk

about me!   

me    

me 

___

 

 

 

Summer 2021  …oh the motherlode…
