The Woman with a Thousand Heads #18 – Glen Armstrong

Oh, crazy speech, liberated

from the cause itself!

Oh, human clamshell still

slippery with the grease of sex!

 

Oh, heaven-bound ephemera

above our houses like space junk

built from a much needed

summer rain! Oh, telltale

 

stain on the soul!

Oh, ghost of Otis Redding!

Oh, cheese course! Oh, secret

underpants or lack thereof!

 

Oh, breath and bardic convention!

Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!
