The Light Show

i sat in the backyard

with my wife

and all the lights were out

to see the fireworks a few blocks away

when we moved in

we were sure we’d see them

and we did

     bursting bright behind a tree

a lot going on

today

the universe expanded exponentially

the galaxies moved apart or collided

                     drifting in dark infinity

and the solar systems swirled on

                     with all their pretty lights

mosquitoes the size of spiders

all that rain not only

cut the heat fifteen degrees

but it summoned up a swarm

of mosquitoes the size of spiders

[on a walk there was a row of ants]

on a walk there was a row of ants

millions of red specks

their legs and faces too small to see

and the line of them stretched for half

a block

ending in sandy holes alive with more of them

 

i thought how strange it would be

if they wrote their histories on the walls

in languages older than time

and all sang the name of their queen

billionth of her name

and move to new cracks in the sidewalk

expanding and growing the lines above

                               and below

so that they can be a part of something

that will live beyond them

to some glorious end they will never see

 

the clouds are fat with rain

soon all that work will be washed away

and maybe they’ll sing songs of queens

                                    long dead

before their washed into the gutters

I'd Ask About the Music

I saw a poster for

          A Clockwork Orange

At some shit shop

          In Corpus

When I rented the video

My father found out

          And confiscated it
