I Could Have Eaten Mango

I had too many mangoes on my mind
to make a rational decision

about myself and
the proprietary methods
with which I interact
on a daily basis.

Those mangoes
were simply too juicy and complex
to worry about pressing matters.

I could have eaten mango
through a cattle drive
through a parlor trick
through a root canal
through a minotaur

until all known mango
in the universe
had been consumed by me.

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.
