vagina monologue

vaginas are made to last til  90  then they  collapse

or some such thing  though i have a sister who has

treated hers to the finer things



met all the best people

a giant of elasticity  if i do say


i was right there beside her when her first child

popped out  everyone was so interested in him

they abandoned her


but not me  no  i valiantly helped her on with the

fishnet undies  provided by a nurse  yes fishnet!


and i must say:

her vagina

looked like

a million bucks

that day




Spring 2022 ..for Kelly..🌹

tick talk tick talk

one of these days her old ticker  will tock talk

i’m outta here




hasta la vista baby!


captain hook was followed by a gator  who

swallowed a clock  tick tock tick tock  same one

who chomped off his  handmorsel




the big clock in the sky is ticking  her name

how many more birthdays do i have?  she said

and   be strong when i’m gone


a woman on the move   soon the hawks will

return  the same ones who carried a son away

Mrs. A. we’re here!    u all packed?


u won’t need much suits  hiking boots   de rigueur

oh and a sword  to cut the chord  of this mortalcoil

the one that’s held u fast for the past century


roaring 20’s

2 world wars

women’s lib  (u missed that memo)

100 years during which

they did not find a cure

for cancer

(that memo arrived)



..long may u fly..



Spring 2022 .. gator’s got yer granny ..


happiness is a ladies gun mama

i was given a gift for my 65th  a purse

all skeletal +hidden gun compartment

a brother drove deep into Texas  to

bring it home


he stopped in Marfa  +fell in love  we

haven’t seen him in a dog’s-age   she’s

the sheriff   former stripper  loves her mama

(crazy ’bout elvis)


the purse he shipped came with a ladies

Colt 45  a dangerous gift for me  all covidragey

tensions building  daily


yesterday my too chatty coffeeshop man asked:

and he’s never seen my eyes!  cloaked

+Steve McQueen   most days

KAPOW!  coffeeman

KAPOW!  singing crossing guard lady

(Warren Zevon)



Spring 2022 more sleep to CPP..


watching a play about the Russian revolution

in a 5 layer non-woven   black iron mask

hyperventilation   +saliva-death


mouth gobidesert-esq   not pretty   a woman

in the next seat  having a medical event  dinner

first     1 decrepit family     over there


looked very Russian prole   life imitates  art

that cannot match the deathknell  for oldendays



before all of the 10,000 things were lined up

in front of proteinspikes  in the billions  good-bye

old life    🔅🔅🔅


hello  pretending to enjoy all of the pleasureless

pleasures  remember when we sat so close together

b.o. might catalyze the gag reflex?




once at a Lou Reed concert  (all old jew +shuffleboard)

a man in front of us stank so bad   my nose

remains wary



Spring 2022 ..with millions of vaccines soon to expire

scale of loss is shrouded in secrecy..

(Toronto Star April 17/22)

they who taught me to wordle

Jason & Kelly  my bro and sister

are riddled


too many discos

and rub n’ tugs




no  just minding their own business

perhaps one in-door unmasked dinner

too many?


no   truth is we are all about to dance with

the coviddevil   unseemly +mucous   yes

you + me


so how do we  move forward?  masked  +spittleweary

marching to a different future  the one we  never

imagined   in wildwet dreams


hands up if u think  had u known this was coming

u would have smoked one more cig?   run off with

chauncey the gardener?


i mean would it have killed u to throw caution to

the wind?  this won’t kill u either  now that there

is more Pfizer in your veins   than life itself




Spring 2022 ..let my people go..


blacksonavitch blues


he was black

with a jew fro


he was the black dog

of jews  in the ghetto


someone told me recently

you can’t use that word   all pc  +idiocy


just watch me


a friend’s parents fought Germans at Warsaw

another’s screamed in the suburban night  nightly


and i can’t say  ghetto!


back to blacksonavitch  regal  27 inches at the withers

black eyes + pawnails   not standard issue   he was



humanpoodle  rode a toboggan   hide+seek  a fave

except we always knew where to find him  same closet

where love letters hidden  +found


blacksonavitch  why is she having an affair with our

greasy elvis doctor?  blankstare  +sphinx  tiny smile


c’mon child  you’ve seen enough for one day  lets play!


the game:  here lies blacksonovitch  covered in small bro’s

vomitous blanket   he was a fine man   the real dogfuneral

10 yrs later


the stain of his body burned into cork floor   dogtattoo

he visits still   cut to scene in heaven  blacksonovitch  (verst in yiddish)

+ father   driving around in a green impala  circa 1972




Spring 2022 the summer of 1942.. 300,000 Jews deported

from Warsaw to Treblinka.. on April 19/43  the

Ghetto uprising ended May 16/43

56,000 Jews captured

7,000 shot

remainder to death camps


great escape my asssss!


i tried

i really did


went oceanscape  +shitscared?

not really  i just left it  too late


to leave my



+undertaker (a ghoulish phoney)


the sailors teared up when i left

and the whales sound out my name

to this day


they  my new family  giantmammalian  +reeking

blubbery mobys  farewell !


recently my boisterous doc  snide (but not whiplash)

said:  there are a lot worse tests than the one i have

ordered  for u


i’ve had a few

my bros too


one  took too many benzos  pre-insertion

and bludgeoned the too happy crossing guard

at Queen+Shaw  to death


(somewhat thankfully)




O the mammalian ludicrosities!

William Faulkner  As I Lay Dying 1930



Spring 2022  ..finally over Mick..

Age-itator? Age-itraitor?


NO  i do not have a problem with  AGING

fer chrissakes  it’s just a passage of time thing   people!

always leaning melancholic  introvert+limpid  in a

world where:  SILENCE is golden  dead


along with:


the supply chain

+parts of Ukraine


did i ask to know  that each decade’s passing  nails u

to the cross-road   time takes a cigarette   time takes

a lifetime    time the consummate taker


takes ferociously


as i ruminate  people around me say: you have a problem

with AGING !  protesting too much against my cassandramouth



professions of poignancy


TIME is grief   i am here  in this veinybody  spent  spatout

still ticking    +almost prancing  with the  dark prince 👠👠👠



u heard it here




Spring 2022  ..soon they will pay me to be alive..😱OAP+CPP KMA
