THE LOST RECORDINGS



IN DEFENSE OF BACH

My father
liked every band
except for The Beatles,
and them
that had to plug in a guitar,
or that
called their drum set a kit,
not to mention
                                                                         pop;
he simply
couldn’t understand
anyone
singing as
sugary soft drinks.
He was
unerringly
a worldly man.
Although
he never wanted
to hold my hand,
I am certain
he would have died
 in defense of Bach.

DISINFORMATION



INVEST IN TIN: PAUL BENNEWITZ
just because they say it’s so doesn’t mean they aren’t lying


The tin foil hat crowd
standing off to the side
of man’s known reality;
romps in euphoric spasms
at every lightning strike
that does not hit them.

Bimetal brain waves
construct an interesting
if not failed view of “hihu”—
that would be “huh” to you
says I or them or…
“huh?”

The antennas need to be
constructed a little higher
to catch the agency signals
transmitted to their shaved brains
resting underneath
all that scholarly hair.

“If I look like Einstein
then I must be him reincarnate”
–right, absolutely.
Ever and always a new conspiracy
to take the facts and twist them
to soul searing, mind numbing
conspiracy that circles logic.

The same way shit, like mind flushing
desert lights, swirls round and round.
Bellow out your truth man and see
there no other object than that
UFO lie planted in our mind
Our government wouldn’t lie.
Coming and going, would it?
