Pratfall


this suicide bomber
walks
   into
      a
         cafe
on her tenth
birth
day

               nothing
         not              even
      a            lover's       punch
line
remains

forgive us
father
we know
   exactly
      what
      we
      do

Plot Twist

but what if
instead
it was the witch
Toto found
behind the curtain

what if it
was curtains
for our foursome
the boneyard
for Toto
horror &
anarchy
for the hapless Ozians
in their illusory utopia

this is pretty much
my average day
    give or take
those goddamn monkeys

Intermission

I think about
that one
meteor
with our name on it
but not
too often

Black Dog

everything
I wrote
stunk to low heaven

I was Pluto
demotes & dismissed
to pester
other galaxies

even
the moon
switched off
her porch light
as I went by
sole rider
on the last shuttle
home
a shell
of my
current self
