2 & 1/2 Weeks of New (Series Remainder)

2/7/17
(Tuesday)
New II

Still true; New day under
new sky, new sun, new clouds—
But today is cloudy.
Sun only able to peer through & around.

Storm front comin’;
time to stock up on
can goods of
       I got this
       super-confidence with a cape &
       fake it till you make it
      
New day still—
       not like yesterday
       like toward the end
       when we had to pull
       $ out the atm
       like pullin’ a rabbit
       out our ass &
       pardon my French
but my chi must of
made a sharp left turn
bout noon, and
       Ain’t caught up with
       my ass yet.


where is the balance

New III

New Day
       New doubt
       like icewater
on marble floors
       at 5 degrees

Familiar frosty;
       not like a
       chocolate wendy’s
       the kind that deals
       with shoulders &
       back
BACK UP
BACK OFF
       Turn your
       Back on me
       & go Back
       where you came
       (Tuesday Night)


new day

New Iv

New Day,
       Breathe
New Day,
       Breathe
New Day,
       Exhale
Ideal situations
never exist & imagination
fails you in the future

New Day
       Breath
Arguments like
       zig-zags for puffers—
       Always around.
And round 2 came Wednesday
evening when she wanted
to talk for 5
       By the end of 5
       it was like a
       count of 5
              &
       this lightweight
       was laid out on the canvass

new day
       breathe—
New day
       breathe.
New job brought
       new exhaustion
       to an old body
       as the old part-time
peeked his head out

at old part time,
       white lady with crazy hair
       hired new manager
       with power issues
       while all black staff
       are called boy & travel
       with white shadows.
       Stress level loc-high

       & if this s.o.b. say one mo’ thang…

handed in shirt, keys, & badge
       shit felt good

New V

New Day
       Good Day
where
fears met convictions
& convicts
got hold of the keys
When
stitches met patches
& holes
they thought were
too deep
were covered
under a salty shine.

New Day
       New Feeling
where ½ beds
were made whole
and 1+1  =3
and balanced equations
equal communication
and good days (are)
       (A) New Day
where success
is found under
rubble piles of
failure
because we refuse
to allow our
shadows to lead

Be clear &
       concise
in your new days
new experiences
new relations
make room for
mistakes
       &
learn to
       embrace them
For one is never
       eternal
however words & actions
       are

new days

New VII

creatures of habit
grinding to a halt
in traffic
same spot, same space
every morning
making grooves w/
two step motion
while
radiophiles drone on
over rainbows &
Mariah Carey

Why can’t they
create a
affordable flying car
that works

creatures of habit—
       This is not a
       dress rehearsal, or
       private practice for just the
       offensive line—
       This shit’s live!
       Training to work with
       the mentally ill is mandatory;
       we need your
       mind, your body, &
       your soul
       so please leave 
       habits of traffic, 
       baby, baby mama,
       doctor appointments &
       how ever many 
       lost hours of sleep you’re searching for
       due to binge watching Netflix—

creatures of habit
attempting to house it’s soul
on corners of
intense insanity, we
sugar-coat down to
life

But keep living, keep
striving, keep complicating
knots till the oceans
dry,
your eyes uncross,
& stomach unlocks

The repeat that ish—

The number
II;
two ones
added together
makes 3,
or two,
depending
on how you see things
on 2.14.17
It’s a numbers game.

Got me
       thinkin
what am I doin’
why this, why this
plan?
the number
11=2=3=11.
Math subtracting
down like life ain’t

1 & 1
mirror image
images of a
four passenger family car
pulling up on
4 wheels
with four family members
in the rearview.

New VII

You can always scream to God
& see if it’ll help.
Or sleep & dream of
rabid puppies
tearing at the flesh of your problems

We network w/our neurosis
in hopes for a better life;
Limping along a beaten path
to the left
our happiness
to the right
our strife.

Sometimes we
make babies with people
we’re not madly in love with,
but love them regardless,
and complicate it
by trying to
figure it all out.
       you can always scream to god
       & network w/neurosis
in hopes for the right answers
& a perfect life.

It is usually  hard
starting a new job;
it is even harder
when life hast it’s
left foot up your
anus…
       you can always scream to God
& network with your neurosis.
