I guess it’s a matter of sensation

by jhon baker

birds evening song

boys weed in the garden

making way for more weeds to grow and insist

 

cicadas sound

make love, make love

here I am, waiting out whatever

 

metal skewers don’t require a soaking

and I love your

face

 

smooth smooth smooth

a moment of several stages

the first one

 

hurts hurts strange

and a means of communication

I wave my hands

 

sidelong and erect

standing to the left of the finished masterpiece

tearing apart

 

and not taking it

anymore

we’re not taking it anymore

 

– Hoc Scripsi

a short, bad poem

by jhon baker

a short, bad poem

 

I look back through my notebook

and find no poetry.

apples, pears

peaches, penumbras, oranges

mangoes

pomegranates

fruits of the grove stand at

the local grocer.

 

I find bananas in several local cafes.

 

in dream I am at this

fruit supermarket;

counting the aisles and cashiers,

wearing pajamas

and blue memory foam slippers.

unselfconscious of naked shoppers

who fail to wear fig leaves

hiding their shame
