Omens of yearly comestibles
flock in fruitful flyby quay pontification blooms,
incestuous and bespectacled with
manic heirloom cribbage terrier flesh,
bought from spindly planetary maelstrom detergent police,
flown from ground to whacked thigh shin spelunker noons
of trebled moon-cave commissar release
to tandem truncheon bulb retort
on baffled sojourn oceanic isthmus arks
of covert island pie-yacht wanderlust.
Emphatic tears imbue
arched inguinal diurnal favorites
of sheds of statutory dysentery,
making local mocha’s Molotov inception discount
into dipsy ragtop strudel triptych fairies;
foundering on bylaw vowels, missing eels,
exploded zebra tentacle belief,
and culled-can paramours of lengthy locking
heel-to-spandex antler’s inveterate extruding pentagram,
waxed to fondled gobs in constant ambulation poofs
of nerdly christening cigars.
Surplus bone cooks puzzle under
kindred Hittite wall clock stocking lint,
pressing flying showboat gruel to
cider longings for chauvinistic euphony
in simply corrosive parameter-pinch jelly
rotunda blossoms of scrunched body bigwigs.
“Pulpit bodice camphor career-peen glamour curls
to the resuscitated eschewal of piebald flirtation lungs,
commendably towering past skirted city outhouse dereliction!”
crumples High-Phase O’Teuton,
Royal Salivator to Ornery the Kith,
Cheap Nasal Hobnobbin Gone Palookey
Till Dearth Fazes Ovarian Sieves,
rotated dourly on slovenly pebbled governing crises,
brought to flowed and cowering disassembly platform nudes
for legal bedroll spackle flotation’s incendiary nook
in Cranapple headwater quaff contagion mythos pleats
of time-retardant carousels.
