School is back in session and I certainly hope I don’t drop the ball with these weekly posts. I’m trying, folks. Here, enjoy a couple short, strange poems!
A Bond As Strong As Steal (intentional spelling):
A gathering of pork skins
and a murder of crows,
where heroes go to die young.
Sheep wool strangling a child,
a bond as strong as steel
the likes of which might steal your heart.
Or steal a steely look at your bride,
yours, the one you love,
the one you’d die for.
The one you got high and left
because she slept with your best friend
your most well dressed friend.
The friend you protected
in the car crash that took you,
the car crash that separated you and your wife.
A Hero’s Welcome:
a dog destined for destruction
well equipped and armed
dressed to the nines with nails and narcotics
ready to riddle the enemy
tagged to the wall and medicated
strong enough to be forgotten
but weak enough to never forget.
