Plastic Shaman Burns Down House

i put the stage
murderer’s sharpied
talisman on my forehead
amethyst redundant
crystal redundancy
duck taped
across my chest hairs
testing one two three
can you dig it?




I write poetry, mostly in free verse with a fair amount of experimentation. Also haiku and some related forms. Once a year I deliver a 20–30 minute invocation for a secret society that functions as a sort of redneck Burning Man.
