Bumper Stickers

“Fuck off,
We’re full!”
Reads the bumper sticker,
The Stars and Bars there too

Built Ford tough,
Here in
Miles,
And miles of

wide

open

space,

Middle of nowhere,

USA.

Homeostasis

I want to
climb you
–a tree,

Feel
your branches
Sprouted,
Under me,

Feel
the pulse
of nature,
Inhale the scent
Of your animal skin,

Feel
the texture
of your organic shape,

Sense
the shifts
in your equilibrium,

As you are shaped
And shifted,
To reach
Homeostasis;

In symbiosis,
With me

Clock Pieces

Well oiled,
Never seeing,
The ties that bind,
The tightly fitted cogs
That tick,
Tock,
Set in motion

A clock face never sees
Its own mechanics,
The screws,
wheels,
Springs,
Never outside
the finished product

But, they are all
valuable,
And of purpose,
independently

Until
Fitted in,
By a
hand,
Each piece
loses
independence,
and independent value;

Interconnected,
but seperated
from the other,
Each dependent on
maintained
function of
the "clock",
To thus do a job
of the machine,

for the hand.
