bright lights charge
(for Michael Carr)

lordly suture as elaborate dance
kill shot to tease fondly deflated
surgeon the maleficent detest has since efforts
flare doves dowse in lemonade

to a coupe
ask for five cents

sum of sun we test
angle of sunshine and lasso summarization
ask to coronation par none
veritable exposition in two ways
parted altars a kin to grouper velour
erratic into do not status

the plus posits to falter proceeds
a windy road forward
vows constant falsies be

conductive limp wrist verification though flowers
chock in startling décor
that the genie atrophied shouldn't pause vengeance
endless scurvy purports humiliations
line in there drowses to assimilation

options in other words

parliament mistreated speaks to miniscule
or five day old fish sputters
earwax in any event petals to since
take to mark in lions one's cause

have at it
the going is charted

My favorite Xmas song

...to impose is not
To discover. To discover an order as of
A season, to discover summer and know it,

To discover winter and know it well, to find,
Not to impose, not to have reasoned at all,
Out of nothing to have come on major weather,

It is possible, possible, possible. It must
Be possible.

Wallace Stevens


how's your wednesday?

Snow + rain = day off.

I'll be in the hot tub if you need me.

Tell your boss I say hello.


"I did stand-up comedy for eighteen years. Ten of those years were spent learning, four years were spent refining, and four years were spent in wild success. My most persistent memory of stand-up is of my mouth being in the present and my mind being in the future: the mouth speaking the line, the body delivering the gesture, while the mind looks back, observing, analyzing, judging, worrying, and then deciding when and what to say next. Enjoyment while performing was rare-enjoyment would have been an indulgent loss of focus that comedy cannot afford. After the shows, however, I experienced long hours of elation or misery depending on how the show went, because doing comedy alone onstage is the ego's last stand."

Steve Martin


Ceravolo in The Nation.


Is no repair on earth
for broken nerves,
wornout heads, the injuries the sensitives
self inflict.
The god of this world treads on brains like grapes.
In the winepress what can we do but sing
if we are men at all.

18-1. Now maybe all the annoying Patriots fans will shut up...they were beginning to sound like Yankees fans, thinking they were entitled.


Even suffering is made of air
and is related to the next breath.

Joseph Ceravolo

I don't want to be open,
merely to say, to see and say, things
as they are. That at my elbow
there is a wicker table.
