shaking yer pinkfeather rattle trap
to attract a fellow young feline
is fantastic not in practice,

intellect served sunny side up
is no good courting breakfast,
though my grandparents were chefs

i don’t believe you, hereditary, genetics
account for no failures of mine, no,

not the ponderous nicotine pendulum,
nor the marginal, glistening mouthfeel.

    Your poetry is fantastically wonderful. It goes beyond the surface of things, it’s like some kind of exploration.

    • i’m glad you see something in them. thank you! your reading creates new meanings. (and you literally are the only one who reads them.) sometimes i read them myself and wonder if they’re even worth reading- if they are simply self-indulgent drivel- or if there is any value to them besides their aesthetic/rhythmic/sonic appeal.
