a bouquet

to begin a bouquet ((()))((())())(()(()(())))
a party for dot comm
syrupy politician's breakfast waffles
as kids we'd yell indian giver
manhattan's tall buildings and this vertigo
up way earlier than early

if a'‘god-module' is found must be a no-god module too
bell rings mouth waters
game and non-game not all the players know to shoot
spurting unexpectedly windshield-washer fluid
out in the weather a bit still under the weather within
'tis the season for cold and flu
today minutes longer in this dark age of disinformation
sunglasses off to read the fine print
long lost friend on the web how expensive my haiku now
the poet's first renga many moons ago
anniversary sexualized little girl found sexualized
suffer the children the priest preys

wanna date? she asks the tv evangelist he nods
snow job & blow job & no job & law suit
willie brown chases homeless from golden gate park
'in april the maytreearchy marched'
raising their glasses to the ceiling good ole boys toast
an fbi category: recreational murder
that tune is driving me crazy the twilight zone
dizzy wizard's little lizard gizzards
the perfect o of her mouth watching the contortionist
does falwell masturbate family values
spray from the champagne doesn't dampen the new year
snow piles up in the rusty truck bed

can't wait for poison ivy and the jewelweed to cure it
winter trip to cape town a door into summer
'i'd be on the lawn of the white house with a deer rifle'
but you did promise me a rose garden
poverty in the mountains with old apple trees: gatesgate
even the billboard covered in kudzu


1p) after j.d. salinger  7m) view of an atheist on nbc news
about actual research on temporal lobe  22m) from 'shetrillogy' (1987)
32m) lucianne goldberg, cnn/time 2/2/98
