windier than thou

you think yourself
tsunami yet never
toe icy karma

controlled chlorine
scented climate
climactic vacation master
artificial lover
plastic portal way out
bikini connoisseur
bulrushes at your footstool
attitude corset of the week
recliner deluxe
harsh wind delivery free
speak of rice paddies in
wake of effortless
breeziness
destroyed at fingertip
whim

it may be lonely on
mountaintops but no less
so at
bottomlands
sawgrass in
breeze bends whisper
palm trees in
high tsunami
noise bent

multiplied millions
motherless laid waste by
tsunami goddess
resistance bleeds
monthly avenges
pain of birth
of life
of loveless
sangre por sangre
blood for love
blood drains money
money drains blood
vengeance is
mine saith tsunami
toes dipped in
concrete pond
icy doctrine
yet unencumbered by
fiery karma

blow noisy wind blow
let us laugh
indulge in mirth
and merriment
watch you feed flames
tryin to blow them
out
it seems vengeance
has taken a hand
vengeance no longer
yours
