Arboreal 1

Stalactites still lack tights and make Superman blush.
Suspended, drooling–more powerful than a locomotive.

Air France lost seventeen of its planes last evening.
They’ll show up eventually, they always do.

Setbacks? You lose a couple dollars, you spring back
with a chip on your shoulder. Go get the dip, dearie.

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.

  1. “Air France lost seventeen of its planes last evening.

    Like a bad Euro.
