Pro-life Poem

Office illumination
perched on the incandescent 
desk lamp precipice
talked down from jumping
by the janitorial 
services

there are things to live for:
industrial vacuums in the dark 
Memphis barbecue
pool skimmers with lizards living
in them…

The higher learning of schools 
of fish.

And do not forget the sacrifice of aging stairwells.
Anything that goes down on office buildings
is fine in my books.

Creaky with arthritis.
The stapler joining paper in bent 
matrimony.

While the garbage is emptied of its daily guts
so we can start again.



Picking at the Scabbard

Jubilant 
let’s celebrate
a first class page 
turner 

rosy Renoir asthmatics 
in line for the 
puffer

confetti
streamers
euphoric placards 
in colour

stone driveways 
long as old hatreds
and just as intractable

by the sword
for the sword

so good to finally 
meet you.

The only attempts on my life
have been made by me,
but there is still 
time.

Now tell me a little bit about 
yourself.

Hi,
The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.New Year Quotes And Sayings I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
Thanks
