For Olivia and our AWOL dreams:

Sanctimonious sleep

swat mosquito minutes

While seconds drip

Daymares vex

REM not

Torpor tortures

Fatigue’s final falter

Alarms tattle

Cornea corona

Noon fireflies

Cinder snow

Weiss webs

Captive slug trails

Dancing ants

Twilight tiaras

Opaque omens

Black hole avarice

Serpentine Satan

Arse Auger

flush away Eden

pilfer polyp parasite

I warp into fetal labyrinth

curse each centipede inch

tail between legs

Knave bluffs

leers retrograde rebukes

cuts hand dealt

draws black aces

Guilt’s trump card

Since he already lost

goes all in

Jokers wild

Inconveniences

 

My blindness inconveniences

a haboob intercepts noon

I cede chauffeur duty

Trip on innuendo

Prod w/contorted cane

that lacks Tiffany pearl

Note: This poem is not about any candidate or political party, just a comment about the constant animus of the political process.

Audacity of hope, nope, cope, dope

slipperyslope, microscope

grope, Europe, mope

interlope, Pope, fallop

trope, tightrope, misanthrope

Genesis

Morning star crests

Cardinal chalks wind

Impulsive stem defies frost

Some obscure divinity ignites

& in God’s image

I create

Poetry
