Something tells me this is serious,
crystal guitar notes
splintering a single squash flower
& scrambling six kaleidoscope mirrors
with cuckoo eggs
before electrocuting Mercutio, thus changing
the world forever.
These notes like sewing needles
or weaving hooks, these notes
taking out the garbage,
juggling wasps of jealousy,
these notes geese taken down
by leaden pellets,
these notes electric suspenders,
these notes, these notes, these notes
piano wires like baby crocodiles snapping
dragonflies & cornflake moths,
these notes………….a frog walks
into a bar & says, Drinks on me!
Bartender says, That’s great!
What’re you drinking?
Frog says, Mercury-infested, nuclear-contaminated,
human excrement pond scum.
