Another Time (+1)

Both old and new thou must review,

changing pink to red


Those poorly formed, to stay forlorn,

hiding in their beds


Begin then end, begin again,

on chance the meaning fed


Whose banquet serves another time

—a feast eternal spread


(Dreamsleep: October, 2020)




Down, Down, Down...


The commonest denominator,

stepping toward the throne


His minions with their blindfolds on,

about to be disowned


The commonest denominator,

laughing at their pain


Another lie, stick in the eye

—a life of greed and shame
