Whenever Poems

USB Plug

turned this way or
that it never fit
unless you flipped
it one more time
as if you had to
warm it up with
a little bit of
plug & foreplay 

Pencil

a reminder that potential
can be easily rubbed out

Mice

they're cute until
you find them
nibbling through
your raisin bran

Snow

angels are
shaking out
their dandruff

Burt Reynolds

a black Trans Am
& 'stache & still
I'll never be as cool

Tacos

a taco is not
a sandwich
which is good
because I like
sandwiches for
breakfast & that
would be just gross

Hay

sometimes you
just want to
burn it all
because damn
those cows,
damn them 
all to hell

Stevie Nicks

actually yes
the clouds expect
rain because that
is what clouds do

Radishes

I like to call
them bitter
turnips because
it pisses off
the parsnips

Banana Seat

Lisa Franklin told me
to hold her hips
& she peddled so fast
I thank God for 1976

Tang

Judging from
the taste
it should
have been
called Taint

Crabs

your body
is a beach
no one
wants
to comb

Insomnia

sleep is a river
town that burned
all its bridges
