officially happy

I spotted a whispering groove

Did you see that? Did you hear that?

no – I knew it –

before uxorious spouses

popped worn hysterical truths

in mangrove gardens

and spat out soldered seams

of children roly-poly-ing

over pushed-up centuries

from Parisian morgues.

Oh, do you believe this?

Linguistic rabbits pressing

synaptic responses eliciting

reflexes of comprehension

in arbitrary abattoirs.
