THE PRESSURE IS ON


MY FRIEND SHELLEY


Shelley said that desolation doesn’t walk
and it doesn’t fly. I don’t think it crawls,
and I know it doesn’t dance. I am almost 
positive it doesn’t limbo, and it doesn’t
sit down or remain supine or levitate
or twirl like what’s his name the dancer
and you know how nobody eats
or sleeps or takes a bath in film
noir movies? That also is the way
of desolation, in addition to not
walking dancing flying crawling
limbo twirling or one more: doing
the cha cha (1961) - no -there is no 
eating or bath taking. Still, and I think 
that Shelley will support me on this, 
desolation has a feathery touch,
and fans us with plumes until
we slumber and then of course
there is a big KA-POW! KA-CHUNK!
but the rest is like the dream of the 
most gentle bear you can imagine, 
or maybe just bear monsters like Love 
just because it is a dream doesn’t mean 
it doesn’t have a shadow and inside 
the little dark of that a dream too 

SUBMARINE THREAT

...where the sun don’t shine and the wind don’t blow them turbines.

Peas can communicate and warn other peas of things like droughts. Peas can say: "Watch out! There's a drought coming!" and other peas receive this biochemical message and stand prepared for a drought.


How do you prepare for a drought? Peas say: you look really sad and limp and don't say very much and you just sit there and do nothing. Yep, that's right. Nothing.


If you ever see a pea like this, you will know that it has been talking to other peas, and that though we have each other, soon they, we, will not be able to hide from the power of the sun but, I mean, should we?


Why ...
