Wondering After All

 

blackbird

minutes too late

to say no

 

grinning pumpkin

many monsters

no costumes

 

whistling snow

his lust filled eyes

my northern lights

 

budding lotus

trading wall shadows

for daydreams

 

starry night—

who will paint

life on Mars?

 

Modifications

 

When I’m attempting suicide,

I prefer eating corn.

 

Caramel sweet,

sturdy gene stock,

safe from insects

boring through its

roots, bleeding a

skim milky sap on

my craving fingers,

slightly poisonous,

perhaps, like buying

a chemical peel in

the Endotoxin River

Delta, often eaten

raw, perfect for

taco shells.

 

My final will and testament,

a kernel in my teeth.
