Make it Campbell’s Instead Nutmeg false positive I did call Governor Pataki's office about the taxation issue over the Indian treaty violation and I think I received their response. Last week I tested positive on a drug test. Got to retest as it was characterized a false positive. The deadline for the retest was today and it was made quite clear that if I did not take the exam and present proof within this time frame I would be terminated. The weather sucked this week and I had today off so I made plans to retest. I had some shopping to do so I went to the Indian reservation to buy more tax-free smokes. A police blockade was in place about a half a mile before the reservation. I was pulled over for an expired inspection sticker on Donna's car. Then we discover my drivers license is not valid and it's expired on top of that, this is a misdemeanor. He didn't arrest me or impound the car which he said he could have done; he didn't search me and find the pot I had hastily hidden under the backseat. Nevertheless, he did confiscate all my photo identification, cited three violations that I must present myself before the Lewiston judge on Dec. 9th at 5:30PM. Then let me go. The policeman was very nice and if I had been a different person I would be in jail for a long while. Not years, mind you, but orange jumpers would be all the fashion for the coming season. It was then that I realized I needed my identification to take my drug test. I called and confirmed that I could not take the test without valid photo ID. I was thankful that I wasn’t arrested and that I didn’t have to fail the upcoming test and get fired. I stand, this evening, free, from prison, employment and taxation hoe bring yo ass Chive Moth Balls I am pulled toward tungsten filaments attractive as moths are attracted lit up I bat them away taking all the fun for myself Sometimes, to pass time away the cat claws my shirtsleeve attracted as moths are attractive fluttering like paper on string She excites when I bat her away distractive correlatives attracted Goat Cheese Mundane Searched images for Made in USA.

I Come from a land of great soft cheeses a place of electricity and warm bedding Conch Lychee The aroma of Lychee is relaxing While discussing the and evasive, it envelopes you concept of "yeet hay" and then disappears within the "leung" (the heating and senses inhale the floral bouquet, cooling attributes of foods) the fragrance of Lychee is with a Chinese chef, I asked mysterious, oriental, floral and her why the lychee fruit is gently sweet. The softness of considered "yeet hay" or rose and the body of apple heating. It is a very sweet fruit and is delightful when The flavor is delicate and sweet chilled. One would think it like honey, it perfumes the would be "leung" or a tongue with fruity and sweet cooling food. She replied "Ah yes, well snakes seek out Lychees trees to urinate on, thus Lychee is considered "yeet hay" because snakes are "very, very yeet hay" Turnip Cream When Lackey decided to leave the farm he packed his life tightly into his pickup befuddled He saw horizons of colors before him Dark purples parallel to thin yellows, red Periwinkle cutting through fields of lime Salmon cutting through orange streams At the local Starbucks the waitress cut him a large slice of apple pie When you are in town, you don’t stir your coffee with your thumb Haystack Leeks There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth There are two sides to every tablecloth Mulled Johnson & Wales Sucks Bourbon Thanksgiving in Providence sounds so Currier & Ives So Normal Rockwell beating his wife in the Bronx or Admitting you are gay while passing the gravy tureen Listening to Fred talk the strategy of NASCAR go fast and turn left, got it This heart attack was nothing you should have been here for the one in ninety-four now that was a heart attack, Barbara here started browsing new Cadillac brochures she was that sure I was done for, weren’t you sweetie the snow globe close your eyes the better to see Cranberries fuzzy blue lines wear uncomfortable wool pants posed relaxed holding his head upward on a fist deliberate ennui scrawls his eyes on some point distant memory of guns, ear tugs, family portrait Think on your face freely become the you, you are after you forget that you are you Plums An alarm clock rings and a blindfolded man wandering with a candle A man holding an ear trumpet talks with a blue woman holding a fish Buildings lean down the street a calico cat rubs against a door An ancho chili expression of radicalized beauty is nothing by itself, when you study circles the center is hollow; the pepper holds seeds What can we learn about Securities Trading by looking at a blindfolded man and a fish?

Eyes: Blue Hair: Brown BlazeVOX2k3: an online journal of voice blazevox.org Author Site: blazevox.org/gatza email email@example.com “Portrait of the Poet as an Action Figure” by artist Donna White. A prodigy who obtained his Literature degree while still in his teens, Geoffrey Gatza was a gifted poet, who’s inability to work within the system led him outside of established literary circles. As the "Midnight Poet," Gatza used his great wealth, talent and formidable network of contacts to provide Avant Garde poetry for a wide range of readers for whom orthodox poetry had failed. While investigating the influx of new and dangerous bio-mimetic languages, Gatza was infected with mutagenic viruses which interacted randomly with other chemicals in his bloodstream. As a result, Gatza lost his vision, except while using special goggles of his own creation. Beatnik was one of the strongest Poets on Earth until his untimely fall before Gatza. During a final confrontation with the original Beatnik, Gatza’s power level was increased tenfold when his father, seemingly performing an act of good will before his death, bestowed Gatza with his superior mental powers. With his father's ability to project lifelike three-dimensional images and psionic energy beams the Nobel Prize seemed well within his reach. Recently, Gatza was committed to Subway™ Asylum following several violent mental breakdowns. While there he made fast friends with T.S. Elliot who was committed for acting like a cat and Ezra Pound. Shortly afterward, a confrontation with Elliot, Pound and Closed Verse left Gatza nearly dead. He retreated into his mind, seemingly lost forever in a coma. It has been speculated the energy Gatza received from his father was the catalyst for his insanity but this is not entirely true. Something else has been infecting his mind...something powerful. Gatza has dedicated himself to protecting the downtrodden of his city from a continuing series of deadly schemes by the insidious Iowa writers. Geoffrey Gatza is editor and publisher of the online poetry journal BlazeVOX2k3. He is a recent graduate of Daemen College with a degree in accounting and literature. Favorite color is orange, likes chocolate ice cream and is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and worked as a chef for 10 years. The former U.S. Marine now lives in Kenmore, NY with his fiancée Donna White and his 2 cats Blaze and Clarice. Recent art work appears in Fiera Lingue (Italy), Side Reality, Conundrum, 88, Slope, and Exquisite Corpse. His work seeks to unify the ideals and disappointments of Avant Pop. He is the author of Avatar, an epic poem of Superman through the 20th century; Secret Origins (Charles LaSalle Publishing, 2003) John 9:25 (CD-ROM) His digital art has been displayed internationally and was selected as one of the top 50 artists in the electronic literature organization’s State of the Art 2002 exhibit.
