Half price mojitos

listen to this poem

While reading poems
by Raymond Carver
and trying to avoid the sun,
the mind might wander a bit,
but only to recall seeing
a sign just off the
for half price
or to move
one hand to
slap a mosquito,


and wipe
away the blood

Timothy Leary’s Progress

listen to this poem

I’ve been waiting to dream about
Timothy Leary for a long time.
I keep thinking it’s going to happen!
Before I go to sleep, I think about
dolphins and how friendly they are
and I meditate on pictures that have
compulsive golden colors. My consciousness
is wide open & I never squandered
my father’s fortune!
I have several questions
To ask him concerning
caffeine intake
and chaos
I’m also planning a trip to Sea World!
