…THE BOY SQUEEZED THE LEMON ON THE FISH…

[response to “Casket Call”]

 

Dust to dust

 

adversity won’t sound like this
shy measure
detritus in attics duped,
discord meddling from the back row
of our ancient gig
dame a cappella, the bebop twins
and dad on the pot
God rest him
bearing (or born by?)

the bane of disregard—
from english to english
distressingly au courant
but dizzier
as auburn birds
dislodge our spot,
in our brains still beak-ing

beats remixed
we bleat

like disused boots
detritus is
distraction
