small outpocketings of lung

fish me a bated breath,
love. a small death
(die section) break
down of

an intricate crown of junk
-shunned strange.

hide your axes, your exes,
your next-es, your sea.

the red panda speaks
of Sigmund and snails,
sigmoid sails,
and distant blind




my Shawna gave me a word list. 😉

  4. an ornate trunk of no stop
    lace acorns and Aesop
    I bend to well, draw in her waters
    ribbon rivulets, Moms were daughters

    that was fun to read and peruse
    I can certainly understand
    when given such inspiration…kudos

    I really can’t tell you how much I love this line: “the red panda speaks”

    I wrote a poem once about a raccoon playing a peppermint piano in outer space (you remember?) … it’s probably my favorite of all my poetic images. I don’t know why, but I love the idea of cute cartoon animals being inserted into poems. 🙂
