5 of wands, inverted

or direct enthusiasm in productive ways."


always a lesson worth repeating.

the six parts of jesus

1.
teeth white like
bird shit on a black
honda parked
in the sun on a tuesday
in hollywood.

2.
a single red shoe
worn in & cracked
at the bends in the leather
laces never tied--
he trips often.

3.
attached to the back
of his head like voldemort
a second, feminine face
complete with a ring
of worn purple lipstick.

4.
two eyes.
two testicles.

5.
"I can't draw a picture
of my father because
I don't remember
his face."

6.
those pesky nails
crusting into his hands
& feet, "I've an itch 
I can't scratch"
he says.
