Three Poems in April 2016

Dog

I've herded the opera singers into
the grove

Where they listen to Chi Gong 
instructions cup worry about
every measure to come

The sun will rise above the trees.

But back to now water cool, lake calm -- 
their lungs breathe to toss my stick
Watch, I pounce on their toes
whimper soft.

Panicky fish, they 
 pant.





Pardon

I just need to struttock your view
Druzzle the rest of your coffee
I agree your lover's a great cucolay
I chadjusted the driver's seat
Before I pawled it to a gypsy.

Listening to Strauss

The tenor won't stay.
Yesterday he nearly
burnt down the kitchen.

Today he's off to another
race, unsure of his purpose.

Eperdu, The Poem About It

Donc
Divine Inspiration 
Manifested at least
Once before
Well then

 - It's off to the races -

Must ought be again
A proposal en voyage
Loose in a
Morally sound
Brown Paper
Package
Ferried
By an acneminded
Teenager
Due to arrive
After a pit stop
Red Bull & Lays

- Surely over stamped -

The derivative - ├ęperdu
I gaze upon
Blink
The track and trace
Number: 0PATO3BWOD
Machine generated
Coppertoned
Inevitable hero
Snaking to my rescue
Because everyone
Promises
A Happy Apocalypse
