dance cards reshuffled cigarettes optional

don’t sweat the math we sexy cells come
to monkey your fruit & flower mountain

way war empire slave trade silk
road journeys spiced-n-diced yours

mitosis

we nuns back of mountain
monastery self chant division into

diploid daughter mini-monk
replicants identical chromosome

menu we are how you grow
heal divide multiply relentless march

nuclei proliferation baba gourd
seed to mama cymbidium sky

stamen stiffies filaments
moose anther loose
dust lust ready to
dog any passing carpel

tho there be orchids
who fuse double flutes
into single column

ecstasy one three-
footed crow galaxy
amazons bedding
down girly men

ode to hummingbird

only hours from starvation
you drink your weight in gold
each day visit hundreds of honeys
brilliant coquettes giant emeralds topaz
bees mango jacobin hermits
when night drops so must
you into torpor stupor
until spider shake breakfast

you stunt fly backwards
up with the downstroke
float like a butterfly
zing like a bee
zoom like a choir of tiny violins
smoke ring vortices
hovercraft wings fourscore beats
each second summer patagonia past
bee squadrons gulf of mexico

your bill & tongue magic wand
orchid’s pleasure zoom zoom
lover of blur beak
periwinkle fuchsia who brought
ohlone fire refracting
rainbows thru prism
cells glossing your feathers
you are shellmound’s rise

ode to orchídea

itchy, b-man? buzz my lips drown
your soul my perfume set your wings

ablaze call me orchídea sweet
testicle my swollen labellum male

impersonator lap dance my dewy
folds let me licky stick you head to belly

golden thrash my stamen anther
pubes zoom yellow booted bacchanal

between hot pink sheets you tumble
off tipsy to dust my honey sisters

bloom another spring past dinosaur
saladeaters our 25,000 species vary

sex menu aunt herma dee swings both
ways cracks own seeds to feed

her lust sister underground blinds
ants with her musk dance sister

orgasmamus explodes knocks sticky
suitor off his feet when he

trips her pollen wire we got
game come fetish your feets

boom my honey
hear me b-man?

ode to magnolia

for nguyen. jade orchid. midnight fragrance. lotus reborn in wings
of tree. full breasted bloom azalea wine. where doves rest.

mulan asks me to alter pants
she’ll don to crossdress as
soldier substitute for father

i add another gusset to crotch
bag out seat so no one will
be her heart shaped butt wiser

when sword skills reveal
her mettle again she summons
snow flower to quilt courage

beneath her metal petals ward
off enemy blows in secret i start
to pleat skirt prayer she’ll return

to simple flower life before enemy
catapults fresh firethorns already girl
tribes dream of following her banner

mountains elves to
stash back pockets
for nakedness to come

ode to comfort food

when cannisters explode remember: bamboo
sword of peace strong as pliable prayer bowl
cups sweet rice chinese sausage bacon
peanuts shrimp moist as toisan nights
you are to new year as tamale leaf is to navidad

when fury frothes remember: lotus
frog oasis round as universe
embraces sticky rice chicken mushrooms
imparts fragrance temple gardens
calms beast within easy as baby finding his thumb

when crowd breaks into run remember: sesame
serrated hands returning wave to squids
drying beside you from clotheslines
you are farmer’s fast food wrapped around rice bite
soaked with soy garlic you are kimchee’s fleetest feet

ode to tissue

after macrophage & fibroblast

big mac me first responders     /slip beneath yellow tape
bright light blue skills     /nights deep into deed
cavern mouth devour death     /stoop shoulders
debris bacto patho crabs     /second explosion cast nets
suck out sickness     /filament transpacific cable strong
i am wound’s bottomfeeder    /venus my embrace
healer’s epidermis helper    /secrete collagen cast nectar
seven month season green    /layer after layer cross wound
spleen let blood collagen     /beds knit membrane basement
clot cascade fire     /muscle enough to massage
vessels dilate pain’s veins     /mesophyll fishnet stockings
let angry scar beehive     /spiderqueen longing
retire neutrophils clear ground     /thread textile looms
for fibroblasts & endothelials    /who knows when to step down
amoeba walkathon     /i am grief spinning veil
over sorrow’s wasteland     /hiding tender new you
