Ellaraine Lockie


The contract requires
fur-lined handcuffs
and flavored condoms
for the lead singer in London

The four female string players
in anti-sexist mode
order vibrators for Milan

On arrival at their hotel room
one purple penis shape
protrudes from a basket holding fruit
bottled water and biscotti

Consequent arbitrations
place the piece of plastic onstage
in the percussion section

Where its middle C purrs
can be proportioned
in equal measures

Don Kingfisher Campbell

I Wanna Go To The Sun
where I don't have to worry
about paying the rent

Shine on me with the music
of the spheres far away
from orthodontic bills

I'm Feeling Alive Again
forgetting what obligates me
to buy gallons of gas

I've got a Reason To Believe
I'll live long enough in this
universe to unneed a single body

Through instrumental Aperture
I rediscover my spirit
in tones without tangibility
