stream of streams

when you get a hanging
judge his wife probably
just burned his toast

`
i’m a southern bell
who just said bloody ell
a tornado warning

`
weighted power lines
one half inch of ice can add
five hundred pounds

`
counting words since
“knee high to a grasshopper”
finally paid off

`
For Nancy Grace
.
you can “put lipstick
on a pig” if you wish that
sure one is willing

if you’re literal
many defense attorneys
do this every day

`

i drink because i’m
thirsty and dehydrated
maybe poet too

i can’t drink or smoke
maybe i’m not a poet
inimicable


now i can’t remember
if you put lipstick or
perfume on pigs

not that it matters
maybe i need a drink now
that will help me think

  1. I liked this way of thinking sort of like, “Don’t take it personally, it is all about what happened to the person earlier in his or her day!” Fun stuff, as always! Robin
