The only extraterrestrial body to have been visited by humans, I said.
And he replied, what?  I asked why you are always alone and
do you want me to buy you a drink?

This is a trick.  Typical of them.  The gravitational forces alone
between the moon and sun!  Another man walks over and I wobble a bit,
slightly non circular orbit, which is of course an

invitation to rape me.  This is the only body I have, samples were brought

back to earth and studied and I thought
what are you going to do with that: my bits of fat and the V at my neck.  My ankle bone,
why are you digging there.  

I lay back and I whisper
there is lava on the moon there is lava on the moon there is lava here

where men have dug in.  And yes whenever there is an undertaking like this

the other planets sit silent and watch
like women in ugg boots and leather jackets.   I am reminded that someone

wants to buy me a drink and it is important to look attractive
to everyone all of the time so I adjust my rotational energy.

          I am good for something
         as you go outside
         at night and I am bright enough
          that you see your assailant and
             you shoot first

               I am good for
something
like
                          take what you want from me
never consider
that I needed
what you took.

No atmosphere.  No magnetic wind.
Take what you want from me but
is it any wonder every important aspect of my surface
is named for men?  Yes,

I would like that drink now,
and I am full,
ready, again.

This is the spot where I am supposed to write about how I am better than you:

published in some lit mags/journals/ezines including Poets and Writers, Rattle, Barnwood, etc etc etc whatever, ask if you want to know them all.

won the 2009 New Letters Poetry Prize judged by Kim Addonizio

published four books (3 poetry, 1 flash fiction). Three out of print and sold out, one still available - please click the book photo above for more info.

Currently working toward getting into a super pretentious MFA program and busy, but also interested in why you write like such an asshole.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

So why'd ya take down your poems anyway? Excuse me for saying, but you don't seem the type... Not in a bad way. Or in a good way. Just a neutral way.

The one that sticks best in my mind after all these years is "I sure as hell wasn't east of Eden." I love dat one. But I just found it so it's OK.

I can't have anything online if I publish them. So I'll post here until I send it out and then it goes in storage. Most lit mags have gotten pretty anal about previously published = anywhere online, even a personal page. It's been a win some lose some as my audience here no longer exists because of me deleting so often so then I sell less books ... but I can't publish books without creds in lit mags, who wouldn't publish me if I kept posting here. So ... Lol.

What a bunch of dorks. In the past several several years I have once attempted to submit something to the one and only place I wanted  to be published with, and it ended with me telling the publisher guy that maybe I did want to waste my time and money... Haa. It's not as bad as it sounds but we did get personal, which is a serious problem of mine. As far as you go I'm sure you'll be just fine with whatever route you choose. You are seriously dedicated and motivated,  it seems, and you have the talent and will to back it. The small loss here you will most likely make up in spades once time moves on. I think that it would be beneficial to your career to get involved in more readings. If there are none, make some up. Travel. Invite me.

I'm actually concerned about this as it seems the thing to do after you publish a book ... but I hate people.
