not each and ornary unihorn’s
hurtbutt harms are deep as
they are savoury

in complicated statuses
and spitshine meme parades-

tupperware wife trophies, livid
missing lid, feels unworthy

dirt-diggin’ hitchhiker bum
middle finger sore thumbs are in
storm swillin’ glories

for pink lemonades fresh squeezed
to chase pixel flavour of
filtered kiwi face

on paris, runway rails
to heaven’s hails
sort of hell

in wastebook’s epic
faceland story.

soap suds of simmer’s blood

she my slippery sudsy,
KY jelly friction burner
jacuzzi fantasy,

all screaming kettle whistle
kinds of thermal scars,
and epidural wines,

lap-kitty hums on,
chill cat but too cozy.

slathering epsom empress reigns
foamy champagne domine,
flouting bubble blossom wreath,

blissed midst plaid curtain waltz
at misfit prom, long beyond
earthly divine,

aloe vera angel cream drips
mercy’s morphines through
flooding stream’s salines

on rusty cactus pricks of
blistered calamines.

raging in to fade

incomplete, and adequate
as crippled portrait
framing corner,

on rotten dawn gales cracking with
tilting ladder pawns,

unwitting but scary keen
in fitted cashmere grays,

where flattery’s butter-up game
always spreads so smooth for play

now doomsday’s gamma rays
sulk in drenched pastel,

dusk escapes vesuvius –
raging steam just rain in fever’s fade

rest, ever as nature’s treasure-
oh lonely
star, eclipsed

drift in, fuzzy beach coastin’ blanket sway
of psalm leaves minding satin shade.

moonman and the sensoryships

sleepy hollow city pothole
han’t claimed tired
roadster rubber

for seems like stainless

clock-tic neon talk shimmer
of swaying traffic bulbs

long grayed by gear’s blueprint insistence
of precision’s auto sequence,

pushing white-bread brand homogeny
while taming tigger spontaneity-

treason’s gallows slow hanging
cauldron impulses ordained

with flaming comet trail

crypt gate keepsake

raging hard-hat dreamer
creamy teen machines

snarly yawning on
‘n non,

bugspray-can, glitter tans
tempting babylon quicksands

same NSFWellfair ultraviolent
x-rays soak so toasty

on powdered donut underbelly beige
of NRAtheistic malaise.

new heavy petting zoo monkeys-

twitching, sasquished bigots of
window’s rainglow flies

earthed as sacred contraband,
in cryptwatch keeper’s
creepy hands.

mothering unrest

these glassy-eyed diamond dogs
are rhyme a dozen

balding baker’s souflees
rising to raw cookie dough

of sunspinny silly
kisser season.

simpleton simon’s pie sampled
of gutter rye and antacid

lashes velcroed to widow speak
spines of each other

in boneyard tangle dry branches
of hospice heart mother

polished and potent

walk it off

if side-glance circus stilts
can handle it,

then, love it out

if you’re polished rock ’nuff
to withstand it

‘spite not choosing course
of every cocksucker storm

we steer raging kernel of
every light prowling cloud

into or excused harms impending-
chops, fully licked

far fetching outstretch of
atomic armsistice, inked cunterfeit.
