Flag,
Grab a torch, same hand,
Have fun with your vote:
Another hand a sword,
It opens a can of corn.

Fake hammer throw,
Judges, like rabbits,
Run back to their holes.
Rather than face the day,
The code and its ghosts.
Instead,
They make jokes, they make shows,
They make notes, that, of course,
Exclude their track record of control.

That dirt road, saddled by war,
Addled by the hammers thrown,
Fools who took no land unknown,
Who speak a language encoded,
Take advantage of the locals.

What is wealth, cash of course?
But it's also a canvass of bone,
Grass in the mouth of a mud horse.

Woof, they say,
Speech inhumane,
They study what they hate,
Play games with racists.
Beasts, in with the snails:
Dharma talks,
From a far off mosque.
Set those dogs apart,
Even if the numbers great.
They don't want to talk,
Just bark, bark, bark.
The dogs that they are.

Whiskey, tequila, rum,
Pizza, popcorn, cheeses,
brown sugar, butter.
Lemon, three cuts,
Twist, bend it upward,
Lemoncello, whiskey,
Seltzer, on the rocks.

Meaningless draught, meandering feeling,
Bar talk, believe not the sweet whispering,
Thinking things talked in the deep darkness,
They aught, talk turns to action,
They are what they are.

Sinking stone, mephitic toad of the ocean floor,
What does the heart wish for? Winning wars?
Logistic growth? Cathartic revolt? Ownership?
Satan, do you hear your kindred souls?

Card or cash, is all they know.
They see fawns freeze in the snow,
and move on, it's things seen from a car.
It's part of a laundry list of misgivings,
They want what they want,
They are what they are.

A wake-up call, A veil must fall,
He always spoke in ways of god,
Unfortunately he spoke that way a lot.
He spoke simply, of knaves and farms,
Like he spoke in the name of god.
Like the oil on the water, 
It leaves a glistening wake behind it;
Eyes are like the rays of dawn.
Flames stream from a mouth;
Sparks of fire shoot out the nostrils,
Dragon tall, shakes the castle walls.

So can you blame them,
When they say fuck off?
Nothing on earth is its equal, 
A creature without fear,
And it comes for us,
The reign of law.

Potato and dill,
Mayo and chill.
Down the hill, of starch,
Smoked paprika,
Pepper and salt.

Only a fool around culinary,
Food fast, sickness, articulary. 
Consume, if you only knew, 
Corn, for which I am forlorn,
I can only eat raw foods.

Estoppel,
Mothers teach their daughters:
Fear god like a cannon,
It's about what comes after,
Thanks can turn like a cavern.

Characters in novels,
Monuments in their honor,
Buildings to hurl themselves off of,
In life, it appears less often,
Withering is more common.

Peer down the fandom:
Book like a standard,
Fans buy a good lie.
Banks burn like a tavern,
Like a blanket in shambles
By the fire that looks fine.

Estoppel:  The dragon sighs,
Wishes a sweet prince, good night,
Gone is he with the fire.

If a caperberry were a fish,
Would it still be in your dish,
What food do you eschew, fool?
Escargot, bear, fruit and goose?
Verily, ask yourself this:
Do you know all, what is good?
Like bitter roots, Like butter runs,
Desire, let me dissolve into the slime,
Like a newborn child who never sees the sun.

An open mouth gasps,
Hot sauce, parmesan,
All I see is stars.
No conscious thought,
Face agaze in awe,
A chicken with no wing,
Would it rise or fall?
As I concentrate,
Stare at a spot on the wall,
Eyes; waterfalls, 
Call off the milk,
Call off the salt,
My tongue stings,
Craters, my teeth sting,
An open mouth gasps for these things,
A king sits routinely,
Being above singing and fearing.

A beef roast,
gravy, toast.
Cheese rolls,
Heap of potatoes,
beans, sea salt,
Garlic clove,
Garlic clove,
Garlic clove.

Calamity, their hearts dictate,
Failures, insanity, Hecate.
A spell long for them:
Dreams, but at a gamblers pace,
Meaning, but then actors change,
TV panel games as passion fades,
Children, teen, then move away.
Tickets to the gamelan races,
They own the stadium.
What do they say, of man,
Their fates? They rarely change.
One could sew sequins into thy face,
Meanwhile speak of other races,
All they would see is a cage,
Call their fathers, seethe in rage.

Stallions of grazing,
High yields, truncation,
Stars in amazement,
What feels like salvation?
A path of slave labour,
Tired people, consumption,
That's how I feel.
Everyone has their favorite battlefield,
Next to their cross with their name.
The spell longest for anyone,
Man and his grave.

espresso bean in the espresso machine
located here in the mezzanine
we serve your drinks with sweetness and cream
a fountain of everlasting caffeine.

espresso bean in the espresso machine
and not just coffee, we
also serve cuisine!
the chocolate brownie is a hit with the teens
huddled together near the register screen.

espresso bean in the espresso machine
here the noise is quite serene
amidst those coming and going, a calm in-between
come on over! help set the scene!

espresso bean in the espresso machine
week after month, to form a routine
yet the tasks of today remain unseen
‘tis the life of those on the library team.

Vape life, they scream, into the ether inhaled.
God's favored child, prophecy in their veins,
Perfectly sculpted face, one that time changes,
Poignantly, he learns too late:
Life is always cloudy when you're vaping,
Love doesn't come find you, you chase it,
Addicts only love you when you embrace them,
Gillette will only love you if you're shaving.
