Poetry from Randall Rogers

Taxi Driver


Best thing about
not making it as
a writer
is you can write in peace,
read too,


live happy, free,
suffering from the effects
of status
inconsistency. 



Monumental


Cucumber
madness
pickling
minds
fraught
chiseled on the mountain
head-rushing
LSD trips
in stone
representing
hope, freedom,
the American way
of love
Christian values
dammit
in travail,
growth, organization,
and war
at night
in the moonlight
howling. 


Among the Inhabitants of the Ant-farm


I would be
wondering if there were
no God
the idea to create one
might be overwhelming. 


Rodent


Sharp incisors
naked tail
furtive
eyeball chewing
pet
worthy
of plague.
