everything has worked out with the upload now.

everything is in place. and now it is about the words, thoughts, poems and a certified lunatic, lover, poet.

my brain has been cold for the past few days but is warming back to normal now. Yesterday the whites were pulsating and greens were were in tangent.

Suddenly I could taste the wood paneling after a fire but there were Vargas posters in the bathroom (Varga Girls) and an even lovelier woman seated at my table. All in all an interesting time – the waitress was begging for a larger tip from the get go – she was awkward and tired – badly put together, but it is easy to forgive those who have night jobs to supplement the day job which masks as a career.

I expect to be famous any minute now – So t-shirts may soon be available.

I want to see a bull gore a toreador

I want to see a bull gore a toreador.

I only ever pray when an
ambulance goes by
other wise,
I don’t believe.

it’s madness but
why can’t it be cancer?
something nice and clean?

I hope this made you spill your tea.

Father’s day weekend

by jhon baker

for the next month I am only submitting to journals that do not accept electronic submissions.
unless I am otherwise asked or invited personally to submit somewhere that prefers the electronic medium.
this is not to support the USPS directly but it has that as an added benefit.
I somehow believe that rejections and acceptances experienced viscerally are more emotionally impacting.

Tomorrow is Father’s day so I will not be posting. I’ve only ever asked for things for my son for F.D. so this year I asked for him to draw me something.

To all fathers who are good at the job – Happy Fathers day.
all fathers that suck at it – go shoot yourself in the thigh with a .357 and try harder.

I support any literary magazine that has the good taste to publish my work.

Keep calm

by jhon baker

 Waking up this morning from barely sleeping, a little here, a little there; the overrated nature of sleep is well known but not well appreciated.
I read in Theater Undergrounds blog (look for link to left) that my pleading to be included on their page of local sensitive artist types has worked so well that I’ve been invited to place some of my words there. Obviously a bit pink in the cheeks and thankful at this I will comply with said request. and gladly.

british war advert advising the best thing to do while the bombs are falling around your head. While this has nothing to do with the above or below I’ve been dying to post it as the advice is sound. No sense in losing your head while others are literally losing theirs all around you.

and so I sit,
in front of you with nothing else

and so I sit.

on a bench drawn with broken pen.
tapping with my fingers through
the rain of last night.

October weather warm,
boots sole cleaned from
wet sidewalk walking.

and so I sit,

in front of you
with nothing else.

have a weekend. – J.
