"Old, bearded fish"

Old, bearded fish
neglected in backroom
tanks delicately
negotiate the murk
-y waters of forget



Aquaphobic Art Show


Alabaster abstracts in traction
interested in treble; fractured
interiors stumbling upon belted red
shelters, buttressed, in fact,
and transacted under heavy manners
by bruisers tearing shreds to shreds
and trashes to trashes, running dead by
some dumb track or other, dreaded
by a pair of wheedling stumble bums
in tandem. Some dumb luck
—in other words numb-nutted hockey puck—
needle-freak reminds our flying strumpet
to duck in order to avoid drowning.
