La Piccioletta Barca - Issue 16

A Morning Toilet, Filled with Vomit

by

 

Alas the décor!

                They
spent their last few coins on
lighter fuse nicotine-stained car windows,
the smell of booze

                   and

                   Then they

                            took a cross-country flight to

                                      Heaven-interconnecting-between-Alpha-Centauri a.k.a.

                                      the Lost Kingdom of Atlantis,

and

                   Then They

                        RUMBLED ACROSS THE WALL’D!

                                                          Mannequins embraced them

                                                               -masquerading silence-

                                                          Mannequins Embraced Them

                                                                     (they made love).

                   Now across this
ocean of laughter-bring-tear-
gas-like-lit-gut-up-get-down-lemon-poison’d’t-fear-
inducing-fire-possessing-shadow-casting-
[No, that’s all wrong.] ~From the top~
Now across this
almost empty room
lie
two lovers, like the plague
and the shrine to pain passed
and ecstasy revived:
A morning toilet,
filled with vomit.
