Current

In another chapter were you a cutler?
Tongue like a cutlass
pierces my poise.
Cerebrations are communed
with self:
surmises mostly.

It is like pantology:
no single person’s appanage.
Let inflorescence of inscape
be my white whale.
If I play peever:
it will ensure my purple patch.

Sometimes

The unsaid resonates
more than its reverse.

A peg leg reaches
the finishing line first.

Without sighing for bifocals I can visualize
sorrow has whittled its way at us.

Sadness is profoundly attractive
it ties itself to intricate designs.

I wish poems are perused without focus
on outers. Read my art, not me, is the steer.

When things have to happen, they happen.
Klutz turns into a comer.

PDQ

Borderless is a misnomer at C-19.
There is an omnipresent gap.
Call it social distancing
or whachamacallit.

Aloofness
is the new sitch:
in etiquette
of social graces.

Fear of fomite is reality.
Pathogen is password
to conversations on
internet or ethernet.

Query

Dolor has greater porosity
than delectation.
Cheer of those in kinship
affects lesser
than their listlessness.

Dregs of despondency
persist unlike other cues.
Is this owed
to the earthlings
proneness to pain?
