Absolutely No Fabrication

Competition smoked
in a quarter of a mile
or something like that,

though I can’t say for sure
how many penguin daisies
it takes to screw in a lightbulb.

I fail to see the point
of penguin daisies
even wanting artificial light–

their habitat has absolutely
no fabrication of any kind,
so how do you think they’d feel
if you blocked the sun
and turned on a lamp?
I’d be pretty damn scared.

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.
