Three Poems

 

SAFETY IS EVERYONE’S CONCERN


Exercising my right to wait in line,
Idiopathic anger descends upon me.

The nominal present is a cusp, a springboard,
A platform as capricious as Salisbury steak.

A grounder to short sparks unrest and outrage.
A meme-like ladder rope dropped from the moon.

Crotch rockets roasted fancy.
Fancy Danika slamming dope.

Good churn bad churn.
Safety is everyone’s concern.


LONZO’S

Gay as hell.
Gay as fuck.
Top tier gay shit.
I’m pretty sure it’s Lonzo’s.


THAT PITCH IS A STRIKE ALL DAY LONG

Your personal note, handwritten, arrived today,
A lovely expression recorded on fine, scented stationery,
Matching envelope sealed with wax and your monogram.
And delivered by special courier.
It means nothing to me.
Your like on my Instagram, however
Means the world.

    That Pitch is a strike all day long: This I like...What seems thoughtful and gracious has changed. Not sure I get the title.

  2. I think That Pitch is the best of this bunch. Title came from a radio broadcast of a baseball game, it is about changing attitudes towards graciousness, the new way is the way it's gonna be from now on.
