I put Pine-Sol on cheddar cheese squares for a living.
It goes between the wet wax lettuce and red lipstick
dripping acrylic like pinup fantasies. That’s all it is, anyway.
You’d eat the mirrors if I made them look like jicama.
And I can. I’ll make you want it. Just a brushing of Elmer’s
All-Purpose and we’ll be good to go. All artists are liars,
so why would I be any different? We do what we love.

Once, I spent seven hours on a steak. Ant poison bubbled
the best - really picked up the color of the steak. Stank
like hell, though. The fumes made me hazy, so I broke
for a cig out in the alley. The rats scuttled away
from the bags of used beef across the way. Ooze puddled
around the edges, sticky in its easy leaking, the poison
seeping its way into the splitting tarmac, waiting for the rain.
On the Modern Discrepancies...

Alanine lets the biceps take a break.
Cysteine thinks that sweater looks good on you.
Aspartic Acid would rather be the crew than the cast.
Glutamic Acid puts its fingers all over your food.
Phenylalanine knows how to perk you right up.
Glycine is the biggest baby.
Histidine builds bullet trains for the daily commute.
Isoleucine keeps its skeletons nearby, just in case.
Lysine has no problem being the main attraction.
Leucine writes the code.
Methionine waves the green flag.
Asparagine started this whole thing off.
Pyrrolysine is the oldest newbie.
Proline thinks the Ramachandran plot is just so passé.
Glutamine looks like just another face.
Arginine will get you fixed up in no time.
Serine hunkers down to get things done.
Threonine always wants to be someone else.
Selenocysteine just doesn’t visit often.
Valine parties at odd hours.
Tryptophan is the unlikely poster-child.
Tyrosine likes our new tan.
Amino Abecidarian
This is quite possibly the nerdiest poem I've ever written and I kind of love it.

I've worked for a Proteomics company for the past two and a half years and I keep wanting to write a series of proteomics poems, so this is one of those. Plus I've wanted to write an abecedarian for the past few weeks since they're so much fun. :3

Whoa. Where did that come from?? Shit-dang. Thanks so much to LiliWrites for suggesting my poem for IrrevocableFate to feature! What a wonderful surprise and honor. :)

Hello to any new watchers and others wandering through my gallery! I look forward to engaging with you, both on the page and personally. :ahoy:

Cheers,

Max

They call me Papa John’s:
I’ll get you a steaming hot
man in 20 minutes or less.

So go on, I'll get you anything
you want. Is it leather? Blue
eyes and blonde hair? No

Blacks, Asians, or Middle-East
guys, sorry; you’re just not
into that, right? You’ve never

even checked that box, huh?
Moving on - what’s your favorite
everything? Got any dick

pics? No face necessary,
might as well not even have one.
No poz. Clean only.

You’ll get caffeinated under
the stars and then just not
even bother with the bed -

couch cushions work well
enough. Dining tables are
better. Hell, why get out

of the car anyway? You
just gotta have a quick hit,
a little fix. And that’s all right -
it’s what I’m here for, mostly.

As a part of my Year of Writing, this is entry #015.

somebody’s getting paid for this.
the pilot has no legs & we’re all
going down. remind me how many
settings we have again? continuity
is issues number one through forty;
the lead is made of mercury. he died
once already. got married twice. so what
if they can’t afford it? tell the producers
to suck it. pass me another round
and let’s get to work. the writer’s in tears
somewhere back in her living room.
the audience is a target: fire away,
open season, a bounty for their heads.
reward: $$$. dead or alive, doesn’t matter.
daytime is dead; long live primetime; long live
reality. leave fantasy to the nerds. praise
the nerds! praise the quirky! praise the
vacuous, praise the neuroscientists, praise
Comcast for this opportunity. the county
programming is on the next channel over.
even the repeats are on repeat. the State
has completely disappeared. we have three months
and we lost track of the budget. oh well.
wake me up when we get to commercial.

SUDDENLY, MESSAGES.

That oscillated between "how rude" and "aww so sweet" real fast.
