listening lessoning

Posted to Action Poetry




i hear tales
of psychoses
rampant neurotics
loose at dinner tables
jeering over pasta
threatening the vanilla torte

i wonder
how many ripe cumquats
will bleed white linens
foul, before polite
citizens scream revenge

how long
must we dine
amongst pirranhas
while dessert
riles us to action

listening lesson
carefully surmising
the obvious
ears twittering action
hearts injesting pride
