Cleveland's Poetry


(as transcribed by Dan and Mantra Plonsey)

I'm Crying Because the Circus is Loud

I'm crying because the circus is loud
And many tears are falling down
Like raindrops falling down
And many colors are mixing to green colors like this
They mix and mix and mix -- into a butterfly!
And people will clap.

They say, "Ladies and Gentlemen!"
And I hope they say, "Gentlemen!"
And I say, "Gentlemen!"
And it turns into green colors
And into a butterfly
And it turns into tires
And it turns into tigers
No!!
Tigers are striped!


Tell Me About the Circus

The circus starts
and it don't want it to stop
It's to start!
And everyone sits
And Mickey sits in a backpack
And -- Be quiet, everyone!
Something goes "Tu-whoo!" in the dark
Mickey say, "Tu-whoo!"
And I see Daddy say, "Tu-whoo!"
In the dark
"Tu-whoo!" -- in the circus

Circus

And everyone quiet
Everyone quiet, today
Quiet today
There's two ropes going up
Up up up up up!
Up up up up up up up up up!
Up up up up up up up up up!
UP!
Moo moo moo me me me me moe
-- a train
A train.
I hear it: a train

Red and Yellow

Mickey started to
pick up some other plants
today, that are red

A Circus

Today, Robert Horton
to a poem, that is,
a circus

Circus Everyone

Crackers!
Put them in my mouth.

[all of above poems from 9/7/99]

About My Rabbit

I say, "Mmm, mm, mm!"
I say, "Mmm, mm, mm!"
It goes, "Mmm, mm, mm!"
My rabbit is no saddy-ears!

Ow!

Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!
Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!
I take my hand to pull out my hair!
We're falling
We're following
Ezra, Ezra, Ezra, Ezra
And we pick down Cleveland and
Be Ezra!
We da doo dee doo dee
Winnie-the-Pooh
Doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo,
Doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo.
This is a song, "Night Train":
"See -- how the night trains go!"

"Where the Wild Things Are"

Up and up and up --
He can't believe it!
He's dancing
He's a duck
He's sort of a duck.
They have come out of a cave,
a tunnel, come, come, come.

Untitled 1 
[Believed to be about either Fred Frith, or "Linda"]

I've got a guitar!
Two weeks, I'm playing music!
"Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!"
I won't stop!
I'm playing music faster!
"Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!
Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!
Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!
Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!
Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!"

Soon I will jump!
Soon I will sit down!
Probably
Soon I will get up and pour some Mickey Milk
into the Milk Basket
Mickey like milk because. . .

I'm playing a guitar
Player
I'm a guitar player
"Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!"
"Bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm, bowm!"
He sits down.
He's a guitar player with me.
He wants to sit down,
You want to play my guitar?
See if my rabbit wants to play. . .

"Hello, hello, I'm going to kiss you,"
says the elephant

Big Cow with Ears

I want to be a big cow with ears!
I want to be the tail of a cow.
I want to be a pony.
I want to bake in the oven and make a pig.
I want a pony to make.
How ponies to do we have?
We have a flavored one
and a peach one
and cone cone piece of pigs.

You get to be purple, and I'm blue 
and Mommy's blue
I want to live in some gravel.
Go: "Toot toot!"

Fruit Fly

I'm a gentleman

Come on upstairs and eat me

I want fruit, fly.

The Exit Song

First I have to pocket my pocket---
I have so many songs I wrote.

Is everybody ready?
Sing the rehearsal note
1, 2, 3, 4, 5!

In goes the exit
Out go the cars
Through go the turkeys
By go the trucks

One Song

One song,
Not the other song
Write another note 
and I'll write the first note.

Snack Song

1, 2, 3, 4, Snack!

Not Scared

At the circus they say
"Ladies and Gentlemen"
I'm not scared of the Wild Things
I'm not scared of the circus.

Cinderella I

Once upon a time
There was a little girl named
Sanderella.  And she lived with
Cinderella.  And she lived with 
Neelock.     And she lived with 
Poohcock.    And he lived with 
Piglet and Eeyore and Christopher Robin
in a wonderful
safe of make believe.   
And that was to meet Cinderella
In her New castle and The Prince.

Acrobatics

I'm doing acrobatics
and I'm working at the office
and the office told me it might hurt me
so we can't do that.

I'm doing acrobatics
and the towel
told me it might hurt me 
and it might burn me and 
it's hot

I'm doing acrobatics 
and the towel told me that 
swimming might
swim me up

and Boom my head
and Boom drop a ball on my head
and I'm doing that because the towel
told me 
the waffle might swim me up!

The towel said,
"My gosh!"
and the towel sent me, and said I might stop hitting
because "I might bite."
Might bite my head.
And I said,
"Ow!"
