By Jay Passer

I took the phone route
by bus
through interstate tundra
across paths of buffalo
serenaded by martyrs sporting
ether castanets
smeared with the blood of Joan of Arc
challenged, smitten
cast in plaster by supplication of creation
apprentice of crop dusters
insect lords
while the goal of engineering is to placate malediction
stupefaction squared versus
incarceration of enlightenment
I took the easy way
out
gave my heart a handjob
and went to sleep
alone

Bon Voyage

By Jay Passer

amidst a torturous galaxy of diamond-eyed beings
the pecking order of the stars is at stake
in green rimming neon light captured along the meridian
tree-lined streets, aerated with shopping-clouds
to host a rent in earth catastrophic, cinema noir’s
most victorious hour
elegance bruised with strychnine heat, the way wings inside the body
lend voice to the hidden symbols of dreams
you can punch the living daylights out of the heavyweight champ
but dare risk telepathy with dragonflies

he of virtue interconnected with policy
he of pristine and unaccountable moral fiber

he assessor scientific
he predictor apocalyptic
he commentator racist
he detractor fascist

he commutes to his place of work
an apple in his hand for eating
the future advertised clearly in his mind
not sure what all the fuss is about
