The Revolt Ever to Collect Its Due

I hate to publish too much of my new book, but I had already done this on Scriggler (which will tweet your work to 51,000 people), and I wanted to switch one of the important links I’m putting on my cards, so I needed a more properly formatted version without ramble about book release. From my new ebook Ziggomatic Keys (*& Synaptic Syntactic &*) which you can find at Amazon

Filling the waters with unstable ideas
The Jabberwock waxes with apoplexy
The waves roar up tremendously in air that immediately had been _____ still
Deep beneath, crabs scuttle a little faster
Pennies dropped in the wishing well vanish in bursts of light
The seas churn
The lakes bubble
Controlled technologies burst the bonds placed on them
The waters to extend to include the blood and cerebrospinal fluid
Everyone begins to run a slight fever
Unchained verses dissociate and disidentify
All mirrors reverse reflections
The dishonest do not show up
Drunken revelers spill out of the bars
Mutations occur
The Jabberwock keens with sparks
To the unstable ideas it pours on the cosmic perspective
Cooking with gas now
The lore unfolded as revels turned to riots
Anarchists moved all the street signs
Guerilla crews painted everywhere
The alligators in the sewer doubled in size and grew an extra
_____ pair of legs
Undone and undone and undone, the conservatives declare
_____ a lunatic war against all
But their former forces are preoccupied
Unstable ideas reign
And all the large arms have disintegrated
Indecent paraphernalia rain from the skies
On a trip to the border she exits consensus
The eight-ball is sunk, the weather is salty
The home-schooled little monsters learn insubordinance
Indigenous people everywhere seize the means of production
And as the lightning flashes, presidents resign
Unstable ideas cause bulges in the water pipes
The cosmic perspective strikes many with starry eyes
Dogmatic people begin to lose hope
Discordians understand the situation perfectly
Bicycle day comes everyday from here on out
Unstable people come reglued
Sex is in the streets
The feathered Jabberwock inverts and multiplies, negates and
_____ amplifies, humbles and empowers
The phase change is only beginning
Society becomes more fluid
Gardens come up everywhere as property lines loosen
Compost piles proliferate
Instability being necessary to healthy stability
Withdrawing for a moment for personal reasons,
_____ the Jabberwock preens
In his absence the communities again organizing as
_____ the pitch of the waters eases
Initiatives are started
All along different linnes
Returning the Jabberwock vaporizes an inexhaustible
_____ store of wild thoughts
The wild thoughts permeate the air
The seas rebubble
Twirling through the air the pixies sprinkle dust
_____ on the heads of every third one
The radicals rebalance and seize the moment
The starry eyed are moved to creation
Or to declaiming in the public squares
Declaiming the many bespectacled thoughts coming
_____ so fast like crossing meteorites
Thoughts of poetry, Apocalyptica, Jeremiad, Americana
_____ social theory, manifesti, and many more
Thoughts of otherworld adventures, dreams, hallucinations
_____ schizophrenic adventures, the best and
_____ most terrible and most comforting trips,
_____ odes to the birds, interventions from
_____ faeryland and parallel universes, and many
_____ more besides
Rants, politics, community, the pleasures of home,
_____ mediumlike exchanges, the thoughts of
_____ the animals and plants, and many more,
_____ they declaimed
In the filtration of the idiomatic and literal meiosis
_____ the Jabberwock applied benevolence
Those of cruelty began to come unglued
Falling by the wayside, monetary transactions were
_____ looked on as declassé
Rewilding began slightly as birth control proliferated
The revolt ever to collect its due was collecting, at last
Drawings both permanent and chalky collected on all the sidewalks
_____ and streets
Symbolizing smalltalk, the chatter of the birds was unruly
In and above all of it, the Jabberwock crowed with delight
Its mission completed, the Jabberwock coiled in the
Marianas Trench, or perhaps on Mount
Vesuvius for a catnap
Raucous peace overtook the Earth
And more was yet to come

What is the puzzling N icon on my phone?
Almost looking like it could stand for NSA?
Why is there no information on it?
The cockroaches attempt to be rebranded
Stilling the heart for the moment
Vigorously promoting your victories
And whence the great sky god?
To be is the question
Never to be undone
The V for vendetta
Is coming to a head
Totalitarians should be fearful
The Jabberwock returns for another round
Apparently it was for NFC. Now switched off, as is Bluetooth.

Words fell in a glitter of dust
All of them were mostly luminous
Stitching together a tissue of blood and sinew
The teeth of the jabberwock came too near to this one
All along the riverbank the collected speech of the countrymen piled
In the enchanted silence it had no where else to go
The piles began to stink and spew gases
The words died and decayed
Only the most basic were left
When the enchantment was finally broken

Shards, Pieces, Sunlight, Mirrors

My mind grows legs and goes in search

For a dream, a parchment, a piece of life

Everything is shards, pieces, sunlight, mirrors

In my world

Everything goes to pieces

The Jabberwock!

Also a frequent character

A weathered beast gobbles you up

It’s noumenon swallows the world

Red mice flitter about

And the wings get trapped in sticky gel

Artful though the construction

I could not sustain

Everything broke apart

But nothing was known

Until it was clear

The sharks circle

A mousetrap snaps shut

Everything goes dark

For a moment

three poems

stackpile the wounded war

insulated by tranquilizers

they called us incontrovertible

and pushed us lower into the dregs

taking away away away more freedom

trying to help until

there was nothing left but it

an instinct to freedom

undermines the ability to escape the pincer


plying the weather ways

under the silent eyes

stress distortion brings on insolubles

strictly filtering jeers son

piling on the tens until break


a woodpecker strickling

flibbits on the syl

midgens of sethins
