when headlights hit walls2

crackling, sick sculptures
crowd stage of 
front door 

keys slung on
cold hook, 
gross slurring for more,

dad’s smarm slickens
nape of  
tight as twins mom-

all quivers
arched over
pie-cradling palms

bile burps of liquor
belt evening’s shy lisp

crumbs of
soot cookie flicked

from son’s
olive chipped lips.

simple math

add- fat cub to classroom of provoked goblin vultures, confusion dashed with stiff-brown instruction, brain caged by frets of flame-adorned home.

subtract:  carefree breeze in cauldron eyes, truths faded in platitudes hugged through morning sendoff shuns,  ability to smooth digested rude

multiply- tally of alarm clocks thrashed throughout twitchy half-sleeps, flights to bathroom stalls during recess eternities, bic stabs to upper left wing

divide- loved ones reaching in,  tender boy-heart, portioned for closing swarm of closing, frothing goats 

equals:  🙂
