Ocean Star


ocean star?

OK better scrap that one

too cornball

leave it a forked around Brussel Sprout pinball

on your plate

the quicker to get to ice cream


-blank verse-


who speaks quietly when the crowd shouts down

who smiles as the Medici Media Gods proclaim

who labors over petulant verse and worse homilies

who even knows what they mean

it ain’t you and it ain’t me
