If you want to be a puppeteer
It started with a grin
I won’t be rained out
Eight classical guitarists go bowling
Toilette water
Words on a page
I never feel alone
I Am Google
I sound the call
The chicken
Can you ever forgive me?
She and he
Girl in my class with the ankle monitor loves me
Out of place on the town
I find myself lost
Student kicks the back
Baggage Badges
I shot Brad Anderson
Here with you
Angry Virtual Mob
Hippopotamus snot
Your cat
My turn
The Deleted Poem
Missing You on Stage
Skipping stones
Not superstitious
Late afternoon appetizers
The door
Priests and soldiers
You cannot find me
I keep fighting
I’m gonna fix everything
I am not Batman (written by Marco Ramirez)


I still the noise. I
douse the light. I
blank the screen. I
shut my eyes. I hear my voice. I
free my mind. I
sound the call. I
am the light.

the angry mob
the angry virtual mob is on the march
we’re marching after you
you said the wrong thing
or the right thing
we’re not sure we’re coming for you
coming to crucify you in our undies 
click the spike into the right hand
click the spike into the left
from the comfort of our living room love seat
while helping Kimmy with her science fair project we have no head
not even a pumpkin
no head to think, rethink our points of view 
just knees that jerk
to tell us what to do
and asses speaking
asses regurgitating and spewing undigested claim chowder
from the talking face in the box at six o’clock and again at nine
we will find you and everyone out of step and fashion
who did the same things we dare not admit we’ve done ourselves Copyright © 2019 Brian Berlin. All rights reserved.
