Phil Crippen

inside a tomato is purée
gestated vine jealous of
cornfields and inkwell ammo
sometimes money
becomes crude

above the surface
is a yes or a no
either ice or atmosphere
a sun cup self-arrest
a boring plot of sand

dustbowl, crystal, eggshell
light bulb
here come the sooners
to claim some
mythological Indian culture

covered in chocolate
weirdo Clampett firing
rocky top rounds
airbrushed names
from the fence posts
