Random Poem:


Somnia inability to stay
awaken before play and upon a
mattress skirting off the box spring
loaded makes the nights seem brief
sober holds the doors as to the cargo
berth on an airplane on the one way
airlift to the runway allowing for
leonidis the lions hour and for
freight the inner debate of
chuting high or tumble low
Officer rank at war standing
not for the entrepreneur when
so much of success is death yes
to their perpetual and nay to our
rhythmic spins and needles in
wheels isn’t inoculate as bull-
frogs go gods barometer or science
fair scape nature terror portrayed
by the forehead hand and apes
disfigurement of fellows stewed
alive by an everglade rage
With chilled blood the frigid
night is more passable if only
for its coma resemblance give
rapidity with grace to youthful
blazes and solidity of seasons
seen between these generations
to night of slow prayer betrayed
ready to adopt the offspring of
all bloodedness faith and face
about genuflexion faced again
