Smart Fires: Poems
by Theo Henson — 2022-05-09
Together lots of lighters light put-together lot fires. "'Arson' said the accuser of the arsonist" said the witness, thinking of an asymmetric alibi. Okay, I'll admit it: I started fires—smart fires at that; the fires that I start weren't just "okay". They totally burned the badness out of them. It was worth it.
I've been caught up in a cycle of consumption subsumed by favorites to the tune of playwrights, forcing me to globally apply my tooth philosophy: as long as I don't have cavities it's fine if they're yellow.
Pair of Old Open Back Banjo Gig Bags (Found on Craigslist, sic)
Just came across this pair of old banjo bags that have been in the store room for years... take a look at the photos... not sure what they fit but one is vinyl and the other looks like canvas (both seem to be for open back banjos)... bargain priced at only $15 for both... hopefully these will be useful for someone and help protect an instrument... willing to swap for older guitar or music magazines...
Contractual protractor Mandated playdate Hickory hellscape Escaped belated actor Found out about it Now won't allow it It drowned it with it With it it crowned it Iconoclast: venerated and floundered Repatriated, then coronated—betrayed All hail the actor royal
Do We Need a Law for That?
In the city, the people's will overrides establishment: Walk despite the amber hand, and Occupy garden written for built. Folk intuition can be great and harmful With hate- and scorn-ful elocution For gar- and boor-ish art forms. Won't a plurality get all the power? Frightfully, that's the purpose of election. How could a not-real populism progenerate from people?
A Prevalent Attitude
"I'm just a personal fascist: I like it alright for me And it would be better If they liked it. But not force it I'm not that Insane."
Once the Federation Meets Middle America
A technobabble-future Oklahoma burgeons forward: Cowboys mount robots and march to the beat; Metal hooves kick back, synchronized—a testament to the progress of the Sooner State.
