CARPAL TUNNEL V.S. THE HOLLYWOOD PENIS

At it all day sexting,
the thought processed but never actualized.
A turn of the head & Wow!
I can do something with that.
Permeating clouds in a wraparound.
For conformity’s sake the hair
should be sealed in plastic,
the thin kind found in counter top drawers.
Accessible without hinged tracking.
You can never have too many bottles lined up.
Best to finish with watered down ketchup
& a forehead drip stained and representative.

 

 


 

 

GUIDELINES FOR THE MONOPHOBIC
The soft tissue around the mouth
must be quickly cut away.
Leave the lips.
Advantages to disposal
I am getting a signal now,
the complete history of roadworks
escape routes and detours
down to the narrow points.
Streams of piths, what best depths.
Impolite monetarist all-terrainiacs
less interesting than glare.
Necks like knees
gawking ever so suggestively.

 

 


 

 

THE COMPENSATION OF THE PROTAGONIST

Can’t be kicking hard enough,
the pile of clothes is growing
soon to be monstrous in size
in every doorway, too.
Not hopeful of rescue,
cavalry last seen on
Dead Man’s ridge
still managing to toot toot,
riding with demented resolve
& sanguine arsed beans.
A shadowy figure in the trees
bathroom issues revealed,
the previous loiterers cue.
Reaching in an extra pocket
for some small bills, invoking
a questionable ecological diversion
is our only ethical chance.
