"Tide Pool: On the Waterfront: Marlon Brando for Christmas"

Art/Photo by Pat Tompkins

"Tide pool, sea balm, blue seashells in rain,
watch the ocean, watch the rain, "everyone
answers to someone, answers to the rain" . . .

"bird fly

past winter tree

sunlight . . .

bird fly"

"lady teardrop

heaven for small miracles


Sid Simeon

magic like that

flower vellum

stereo eyes

jewelry shang bit

the life cycle of diamonds

and something in girl song




and gin coloured robots

street back

fire signs

and southwest Anaheim

June bear

jus and candy rain . . .

of lightspur

they crowned

their own euphoria

the tragedy

and we wear

the dresses of the damned

dance in the silences of winter

remembering the moon

and the silence rains down

like music





the night travels


the moon

some blue night

i follow

blue dragons

in the night

I watch the rain

I watch the sea



awake the dragon

stirs the blue

the flower

that opens

and closes

the next thought

in the woods

calls down the moon

claims the moonlight

cross warrants

crowd funding

a pearl earring

from his wife's treasure box

something you get used to


about attachments

it is February

into kind . . .

the glass cloche

forces the flower

into bloom

the glass sweats

in the sunlight

in the winter days

of sunlight

the glass bell jar

someone in

innocent arrears

the inside of the road

the whole earth, blue

and the island caves

carved by the

beating sunlight

the ocean

bone rooms

with no ceilings

and the rain

soaks our skin

as we lay



the sky

and then

the sun

cosmic happenstance





answers to the rain

the last imprints

(rain on bare skin)


bang warrants

in history

desire is a hard beg

to say no

the geography of no

to have your dress removed

the white veil


from your eyes


it is hard

to stay alive

drugs and Christmas presents

in the underground tunnels

of Alcatraz

i lay down

hope for sleep

heat and light sparks

across her throat

the night

is quiet

i drift


down . . .

strawberries and honey


across the moon

the Market

in the morning"

"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

(inscribed on the Statue of Liberty)
by Emma Lazarus
