Chop Suey Poems

Do You Know What the Choir
is Chanting in Postludium?

The sandman can sleep anywhere

his six-armed coat hangers dragging

everything into your embryonic

elephant dreams: venus flytraps

playing strip poker with a naked

Anthony Bourdain, alabaster-skinned

vampires fly-fishing for Swedish

mannequins that keep getting bigger.

Sleep paralysis can pass through walls

anytime and sear Hendrix’s “Star

Spangled Banner” through your body,

his three-finger tentacles pulling off

your covers.
