Shattered Wig #28
Coming In November!

its beginning and its end cannot be found

its beginning and its end cannot be found

like two strangers chained to pipes
in an underground bathroom
or neuro-theology practiced by
a largely ceremonial department
with a tiny budget and few
you may dance but
you may only dance
within a parameter
of a few square inches
like a little shack
built with floss
and discarded
board games.
Floss used by a
near toothless man who
lives on ballpark cigars
and fava beans

The little shack dances
O how the little shack dances
buffeted by wind in a field of
corn and despairing scarecrows as
you dance only with your inner mind
where feet are many and frog-like
and you and an old Ravi Shankar
record can be alone

Just then
when you tapped
the shoulder of the guy
in front of you
well, his torso is behind you
gladiator air freshener
tendriled your remains
meal worms shifting
in a dental chair, the
final prop left standing
on The Planet of the Apes

I thought today was
going to be the day
but it was another
