Babies


Inner
dashboard
flesh alert
stalls open,
yawns,
unloads
a billion
babies.



Ejecta


Fenders
hop
akimbo,
swerve in
calm ejecta.



Footsteps


Retroactive
footsteps
feel the call
of history
unchained.



Gel


Antiseptic officials
extricate the future
from plastic.

I scream aloud
in culpable gel.



Jacarandas


Pureed duplex
floats downstream,
exonerates an owl.

Sunrise empties
jacarandas.



Moon Height Away


Tag along
to cat hair suite
reproductive
sigh asunder
steeply agile
east moon
height away.



Narcotic Dusk


Lying prone,
I synchronize
my breath to
appendectomy
incisions.



Purr Peek Poke


Purr peek poke
peduncular uncles
avuncular adjutants
remanded mammals
emetic armoires
imbecilic antipasto
borscht.



Rendezvous


Hovering
words reply
forgotten.

Quail signal
an offshore
submarine
to inch ahead.

Gibbous alterations
coruscate a surfeit
of diamonds.



Uzis


Origami
offers
operatic
oligarchy
oatmeal
on and off
again.

Apsidal
apparitions
ask apoplectic
anagrammers
for Uzis.



Vellum


Verily
verisimilitude
veers valiantly
vexing voluminous vixens
voluptuating voluntarily
vacuuming virginal voices
venting varooms
vaccinating voters
vamping vindictively
vending Vercingetorix's
vapid venom
vilifying vitiated victuals
visualized in vellum.



What Why When


Alert and asking
why whoa wait
who's holy
wishing worldly
well whodunit
what why when
