Pipes Belittle

All those chain reactions
busting through the pipes

belittle stinky cheese scraps
and human growth hormone.

Tearing rich philosophy in two
while unicycling underwater

leaves much to be desired
for one’s lungs and psyche.

Lunge through the book covers
and try to absorb it this time,

you pompous snake charmer
with more wit than cantaloupe rind.

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.
