All That You Are

(I Have Read Peter Handke
and performed a similar piece in
S.F. 78-79? in a class with Alan Kaprow.

This piece is best read with two or
more readers to be understood at the
moment of peak chaos, maybe.

One hundred you's would be enough and less
would be OK depending on the readers discretion.

A few in the audience could participate also.
Be sure that each person reading has a
different order so as to keep from redundancy
of meaning.

A Poetic Fucking Gesture

I wound my fingers around the

the
fucking planets
all of the
fucking universe
thinking I am in touch
but Iam really not in touch
I realize
this is only a
poetic fucking gesture

Mutant Friend

i was sitting with a
mutant friend of mine
at the banks of a river in
new york city
laughing and crying
very heavy and non-stop
until all my clothes were a soaking
mess of contamination as
the water in front of us and
my eyes burned like fire from the
tears thinking of the year 2020
when things were better

in the dark, thinking about
some particular time in my life” and

terrorist interrogation room as seen in
a waking dream

at first when i entered the room
i wasn’t able to see anything through
the smoke and ash
falling debris and darkness
as my eyes became adjusted
i could see a shape hanging from the
ceiling moving ever so slightly from the
warm wind blowing in through the large
irregular holes in the walls
at first I was hesitant to look through
the holes i could see the targets moving
in all directions daring me to shoot as in
a game i played with my friends when i
was a child
