Lion Liger



Damn Lion Liger
tiger bugger

licked from my Apple
martini you fellini 
and houdini
bam bam bambini

you go boy

why do you drop
and hop
bouncing round
in candid tigger
ness all amiss
coy catman...
wait... what...batman?

what ever

when ever
you do
what you do
with drinks
and food

and say...
tasty feed
lucky deed
steed & mead
we go

it works

promoting chance
and hap hazard
stance

yellow fur
barbered
and groomed for churches
and bars

well you
you had to
lick 
and wink
thats what
Lion Ligers
do 
after all... don't stall now

Lion Liger
Tiger Liqueur
Apple Licker

bitten butter
and
waiting knot 
sailored and tailored
for what

i odn't know
oh odn't
know

oh oh oh
oh boy 
ships ohoy
is what i say

now the tip 
i suspect
20 purrrrr
sense
and some change
sense all gone
you say

so flip you
for it
tails win
or heads up
takes the game

and takes

off the lap
the nap
kin we are

surely 
we are 

ships passing
and all that over suff
souls re
viewed
rewound 
and battened down
for the nexus
go round

same refrain
imagine that
cat

Lion Liger
sunbeam 
machine

rumble my cage

and my 
damn tiger
ness 
all over the place

forget the check
let's share
for lions and tigers
and lickers and ligers
behind fences
and bars
need yellow brick roads
from time to time
and twisters to rattle the bones

so tend your own
yellow lion mine

and ship your sails
with catnip clouds
and catnap noons
and see you soon

next time round
under blue and yellow
and those perfect skies
lapping over our happy chance

and your strategic fate

and your gravitas

and the heavy wait


but you stood

cool blue tude

and i knew

oh how i knew

the sun


and i welcomed

the fall

CULTIVATE - an illustration for IF



cultivate
farmer mandrake
and make
our fur and feathers
feet and rathers
trimmed to fit

under
snow and bonded covers

lulled and vas tossed

rugged stone
untamed ground
silken and warm
gentler than

than gardens
that whisper
and wave
behind little white fences
and flapping submission
standards painted red

lulled and dulled
our stony tools now take
such a domestic norm
for the eden dorm

so warm
and toasty as butter
even nuttier
perhaps
when we plow and dig
and farm
and rake
and till
until
we are oath bound
farmer mandrake

but still we can
and do
and take

we can
warm tuck
and good nite
our cozy right
under the new covers
of our licit night

and wake to tomorrow

under an open sun
