John Pursch- A Poem

Radio Reef Alibi

In a certified coming and going of elided scribblings
on memorized compartments of thought patrol incursions
to otherwise interpolated domains,

left stranded by potentially sanctimonious gooey dodderers,
flipped to beckoning secondhand basement floor plunderers,
smocked in bleached coveralls;

this is how lobotic surgery begins and often ends,
purporting to be a spate of the artless codger’s
phony intentions (herbivorous, to be sure),

waddling breathless and overeager
into suppurating sores of porous undertaker snorts,

hassling churchgoing heretics with alms requests
for albumin in radio reef alibi resort carafes,

flotation be crammed in sneezed comportment bellhop drift
of staggering cranberry walks up filling station urinals
and paginated treetop dizziness charades,

to lifelong lunacy in tic marauder melancholy
itch machine expulsion’s expository demitasse
of demolition burpee bungee humpback dotage
namesake placard wherewithal,

held high aloft in sacred acrimonious regard
for elfin telephone entirety.
