Wax Leviathan

bus station tag through to the next life

painted bookshelf
wax leviathan
a chocolate covered cashew
“almost gone” suggests spirit airlines via email

“what’s a fancy gal want with me?”
i ran into her on purpose after meeting her by coincidence

an antique collector’s home
future trip to the airport
“there’s really nothing to this”
all the characters are present
returning to the cinema
live news broadcast

all through the house there are no nice pens
no one shares a bed

the wax leviathan they serve at any hour in this diner

“join the club”
there’s a skull in the wall
there’s a skull in the paint
there’s a cylinder in the cup

faced with reality
i sleep on the couch
sometimes in the bed
sometimes with the television on
sometimes with the volume on 7
10, 11, sometimes 14
boxers, no shirt, no socks

underground whether in the lab or dodging boulders
as i was saying, crossing the street is a game to numerous birds

yeah, there were pictures she wanted me to have
she used to be a bit more photogenic
the world seems short of friendly mentors
at this age i’ll probably need a marriage counselor
girls got a lot goin’ on and i haven’t payed my dues yet
but hey thanks for the imagery

i haven’t made anything yet but i’m working on it
tomorrow i plan to change my life
perhaps you should consider something similar
there’s always the grocery store
alone and beautiful on blue mornings
the distance / the surroundings
i can’t tell in the dark childlike morning
whether it’s winter or spring
smoking like i know more card games
i’ve been looking ridiculous in hats
behind the wheel
beautiful white beads
she can see i don’t belong
the culture-counter activation card
i’m catching up on things in the car

and to the red truck with it’s high beams on behind me
“i have nothing better to do on a saturday night than the speed limit”

no one sees my eyes
for all i know
they could be empty
