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 acid 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
tidelights
,

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.

Masqueraid

The chalices spiked greedy, and the sights quick turned seedy as we flowed into…

masquerade 2

’round ravished,
ostentatious room,

flaunts of
mystic blood-house
masks

flatter past walls
and cryptic spaces

myriad grotesque, to
gallant, burlesque
in garnished
guise

in silk, satin-clay
plastic velveteen,
and feather

but what, these
see-through feigns

they reward no
eyes?
