Annual Question-Spinning

Up early each day, scrutinizing the skies.
(One by one: Stunning sky, dreary sky, intense sky,
tepid sky, generic sky, copycat sky...)

Bogus intellectual juice.
But the analogous meteor is sweeping into the constellation
of this argument like a burst of consumer fraud.

Offering pomegranate for Halloween
spells one month of every year in Canada.
Next time, get fireballs.

Injured (Like California)

Los Angeles was a chance, a retreat.
The army of cars sounded like firecrackers,
or security.

The rain somehow escaped.
The hideout was flight: the highway
a drug, a prison.

California was injured– a people debris.
The mountain was a wounded relief–
the face of thunderstorms.

Economy of Athleticism

We rest the day in coffers of long hours,
with the delirium of a Vanderbilt.
Tens of cars that drive themselves

are apparently buckling under the streets,
but even casual runners know the way.
I slip into a marathon

like I slip into a good night's sleep,
making the criminal possible;
ears and accomplishments in pursuit of a slipped-up notion.

Choking Trump Storm

Refugee weekend.
It’s frontrunner season
with airstrike opinions.

Maximum gambit.
It’s a 115mph crisis.
The regime’s in tears.

Gasoline central.
It’s a Florida family fight
with category-three airstrikes.

Jeremy Corbyn Bringing More

BIGOTRY – the morning news is told
that raising fears is not certain –

but seeds of discontent is certain –
jibes, disaster, attacks without
handcuffs; a teenager told

he serves an example, told
not suitable, is certain.
and so both are happy without

Rephrase "Not Lost"

I live in the middle of nowhere.
I can do nothing but wait for a train.
That's why consistency is tainted

by the formula "practice makes perfect."
If I know the shorthand,
Hell must be the pavement of direction.

If you are not traveling,
maybe I can get a ride with you.
I live in the middle of nowhere.

Perspective of Lakes

The heart's content is a loudmouth;
Twitter says it's followed by one person and several liars.
This is your big chance to ignore it

in a bid to get your messages
from a more generous messenger.
At the last trump, the world is leapfrogged

to make empty theater.
But she's a million-gallon soup
and she's put a tributary on the river indefinitely.
