Archive for the tag “abstract”

waiting for the bell to ring

to be more abstract
a jonathon cut into six parts
shared by four people
sitting ‘round a table for three

conversations often lead
to detours & dead ends
how the one never listens
all others simply rambling

it always get late too early
in this part of town
floating higher than ten stories
thank you hash under glass

the count is unanimous
pheasant for the last supper
a wish & likely a reality
pears ripening in wicker basket

november two thousand twenty-one

the chocolate revolution

there’s a revolution brewing
and it’s going to be loud
and dangerous and downright
unintellectual for so many

old women stand in long lines
buying magazines for their men
while inside dogs stay huddled
behind yet intact furniture

unrecruited men and boys
hide behind alleyways
reading the latest reports
from handheld devices

a voice from the loudspeaker
claiming to be the answer
promises free tickets to paradise
and chocolate for everyone

april two thousand thirteen
