I Am Not A Tooth

Posted: April 7, 2019 in poetry, Uncategorized
NOT A TOOTH
I am not a TOOTH
You are not WE
I am not MOST PEOPLE
WE are not A TOOTH but
What are TRUTHS?
THIS is not THAT
WHICH is THAT witch
Which remains INSIDE
A TOOTH of TRUTH but
What are TRUTHS?
THIS is what YOU WE I 
Wake up thinking at 
5:30 in the morning.

What It Is

no sword for time
no time for words
holding sway

come this 'way
a sway, a swab
a swoon of swans

flour   ice   plastic
sacks of dog poop
left in the street

my bag is yours
your bag is mine
left in the house

one inch, one foot
one foot, one yard
a yard full of toes

spun litter ragas
wipe away the toes of
all the toads in our yard

letters make a word
words make a poem
poems make a book

Fluxus Is
What It Is


C. Mehrl Bennett    April 1st, 2010

(In it's previous version
this poem was a booklet 
posted as mail art in March 2019)

LAST NIGHT I DREAMED THE PRICE OF BEAUTIFUL FLESH TONED PERFUME

LATER, AT A PARTY, A FRIEND DREW A MAN WITH CUNTS ON HIS SKULL, THEN

I SPRAYED A NUDE MUGSHOT OF HIM OUTSIDE THE KITCHEN DOOR, AS A GIFT?

I DON’T KNOW

I REMEMBER A SKELETON PRICKING

THAT MAN’S SKULL WITH PINS

AS IF IT WAS A VOODOO DOLL

FOLLOWED BY

A WOMAN SMEARING ALFALFA SPROUTS

ONTO HER FRESHLY BARED BOOKS

I AWOKEIN A GUILTY SWEAT

AS IF THE WHOLE ROOM HAD

SEEN THE SKIN

PEEL OFF MY

COW
