John Pursch- A Poem

Spankle Spunky Two-Reward
Savory hovering parakeets
isolate striated pheasant appendectomy cures
for worming caricatures
of residential stocking souffles,
calmly canonized in basket blur routines
as Spankle Spunky Two-Reward,
the Bubble-Faced Rabies Kitchenette Sailor
(an idolized and cranked-over
waste can antic purveyor
from seedless Cotton War bag
munchy fetish police).
He rode from Ding Dong dusky
daily noontime slouch showers
to cemetery egg fog cooler rostra
in stale night mustard chalice entrecotes
of truly known incendiary nomenclature,
spying rudely on deboned hysteria tycoons
from oaken lonely wholesome tributaries
of the Minty Mess o’ Simply Apoplectic
Flunky Satiation Choice Brigade;
always swearing,
hunchback hind a-blazing,
wracked by cue ball keratosis,
keyed to pseudopodal tonal halls
of bulky malefactor cruising steeds
in salivating trains of chunky purple,
bent in awful hurling siren sanction
underwear deployment interregnum
nightmare standoff.
