plot of spades

coal miner monarch shrew
vaunts whet scarlet

with crude grease
stiletto grace

bearded dragon blade
pares dumb boor chap’s
candied apple face-

roe quakes bruised teats like
reckless romance rattles

at sticky, credit card
boys, tendering 

lord joke of shovels
hisses lewd,

13 treasons why his
killer queen, neighs
frisky nude-

mare stirs malice to
bubble boil, chills  her
savage garden plan

in zeal, to splay
her cyanide sympathy

binal fatale

she flood sponged
the scarlet tint of 
slaughters sought

with blemish shy
supper table smile-

all while,
I flashed sly,
land shirk’s
begging blade.

quite the
trainwreck duo-
love-daft as brave.

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:  🙂
