Distended Tendrils



primitive power structure slick with glassoline
solo solitaire satire de-erected by machine

placed in piles and piles extended entrails
distended tendrils collective syndrome
black-gum bass-drum


controlling massive mental barges
gone back-back-back to childhood
starving for love attention devoid

nourishment sustenance anything edible
weak matters desert living life

panic is the chemical the all polemical
such dogma tick tinder dry matchstick

begging pardon, scold
see this pile of plums
watch and light them
