I Just Herd…

I just heard

a hummingbird

in the Special Collections Room;

flew past the heavy metal

cabinets

There, There

lyric

dropping

through the needle

drowsy

frontal lobe

rhythmic

Egyptian lumbering

Unto

(next stream-of-conscious

thing

googling

Powerful Pow Wow novelist

Sequel Coming

2022)

aaaaaaaand

We’re Back!

A variation of

“Just ’Cause you…

…doesn’t mean…”

aaaaaand YOU?!?

What invisible

beautiful

tantamount

nature have you heard today

in strangest spaces

out there?

Do you really Listen,

Mateo?

Really.

Listen.

Mateo!

Short of a ray gun –

ride on,

riot,

ride on –

have you only just herd

about me

via

True Love Dancing

1st Corinthians

and

Statue of Liberty

makeout seshes?

via

Obscene, uncensoring

liberating voices?

Do you hand off

mire daggers

mirror knives?!?

more guns!

more bombs!

more! more! more!

Merely

in the name of harmless gossip?

and pass them off

like an Olympian

torching a common civilian life

feeding a monstrous stream

behind the street spirit

simply seeding green

outside your judgemental

tinted windows?

Quit following

Quit filming

The lives of others

as if the herd of

hummingbirds

only remain

Unfollowing

Unfilming

what I Just Herd;

All the same.
