Constellation Pigeons

on these most beautiful nights when I accomplish nothing

dreams and death and power outages, all the same

full of weepy this, weepy that

or waves of synthetic happiness

slapped up or down like a light switch

today I floated green ghost over a sick city

after taking out the garbage, taking out the recyclables 

after dropping off my taxes 

plz save your applause till the end

birds make trees to sit in 

by flying and shitting

spent the day pecking seeds

from pavement 

and now, look at me, naked in front of a computer 

retired: smile this, chipped tooth that, even did the dishes

as the moon began to gnaw on the building

I’m just one man

sucking in all the pollen wind

exhaling out 

rainbow puddle gasoline ocean.
