Random Poem:


drawn out on inside jokes,
astrology frames canvas
as our psychology inhales
cookies from the cutter
of course, i'm no different,
believing by convenience
whatever the radio sings,
hoaxed by hope on horoscope,
hallmarked by your sound:
hard-consonants half-hushed,
magnetizing my every molecule
with my name in your mouth
as primal pith of spoken word
maybe the l.a. times guessed right
in naively matching our months
or maybe we're just generically,
passionately predictable
