Random Poem:

Seven Months From Yesterday

Turbulent as the gale tears and rips
this verb weighing influence grins,
shaded in satin expectancy.
These cornerstones of my confidence
go crumbly in corroded rust framed wedge heels; a white dress cave-in,
a red apron meltdown.
My de-virgin-iced intent; absolute-ly.
We itch our knuckles raw for seven months more, till the un-undoable
takes a trip, slip
fall,  from the calendar, twined in ribbon, steampressed
