1/13/21 to 1/26/21.

tower power beezlebub
forward forward gutter dust
eels will slither over you
forward fire back nothing
forward beezly rock the world
forward falls into the loop
nothing stuns and nothing feels
no alter course on the remote
the singer roars the bass to max
forward dust and nothing back

shepherd's day
mweevil sweet people
take the time away
why for the typeville slot fear
sacrifice their better parts
for the long view streets
of endless Mephistophopolis

o gobbish fee for alls
draggy bean faced
less-than warriors
monkeys
without
families or
tribes all
the inner
pics are fuzzed

topographically inverse
gimme dat old planck time
when things were simpler
everyone the same with all
the other energy bois
trouble! there's trouble
ahead and behind which
i apparently chose?

beeves fles the building so
ashamed! and caught red
bad history for the end
sloppy overturns and jail time
it's a hard winter for overtones
'so wee kilt a cupla beeves'
sno whut they's a thousand
tiktok beeves here comes J.

twelve
banners in eldeveldt
county the sweeps are coming
the air is green and soon no other
one feels the swelling terracotta
ray guns out and up boys weeer goin

codified flower light
swells singing breeze
elevant washed clean
held high and happy
a never dream at last

wrong to wildly right
wind rocks with
nevilledog sideswipes
seeps spring from
softball lives
handmarks and
smooches last
to the one who
lives the story
ultra glory
it is those
eyes that
center
those
small
words
said
in the
dead
of
dark
est
hot
long
hours
when
lives
are
made

1. This is great.

I don't really get all of it, or maybe even some of it, but I love the rhythm and the way the verses fit together.

Have you ever had a class or a workshop? You've certainly got something good going on here.

3. Thanks, Peggy.

This is just what I do every night before writing the novel, loosens up the muscles. I've been writing poetry since I was five, but my degree is in theater. I spent years doing serious improv with serious people that led to this process.

I'm -- 25 pages from the end? Of the third novel.

This is me.
