If That's It

If it's that
second of friction that would collapse the solar ice caps,
due to what others and I both said they said, I doubt

if it's that
helpful for slowing down the new year's spin.
The world's timekeepers have to drink; I just asked

if it's that
broken clocks are correct or that they are exact,
completing a day or two of what they said they said.

Trying has the speed of a functioning Monday.
Succeeding won't secure the bow,
despite whose heads are urged to budge.

The deliberate spread of bankruptcy, cholera,

Worthless predictions are bad recommendations.

Frightened Global Overdose

Within is mournful pandemonium dazzled
Nothing so only as a calico or killing as this bough
This is what it is staring arc of instability

Possibly it was to blog scepticism
Into a torn a dumb rumor of predictions
Might you not emerge a kind of god

Pregnancy engagement falling

Among the important issues raised by the pregnancy of Oregonian Thomas Beatie is whether a female-to-male transgender person who becomes pregnant might be endangering the fetus, especially someone like Beatie, who has been taking testosterone for at least 10 years. There's very little research on the subject to date, and some experts are at odds about it. Any possible damage done by 10 years of testosterone would be irreversible, he said.

Jamie Lynn Spears amped up her own engagement rumors Tuesday by showing off a sparkly rock during a Kentwood, La., coffee run. Of course, if it is an engagement ring, she's wearing it on the wrong hand. But those Spears sisters always have done things...uh, a little differently.

"It was like any other night," Raul Navaira, 40, said Wednesday.

The Hidden Progress

Today the spokesman for
a malfunctioning Earth decided
there will be war.

But at dawn, as the fierce-eyed spy
unearthed his corrosive
appetite for victory,

the clandestine prey
shows its teeth
strong and unambiguous.

Heavy Smoking Day

Unable to quit, smoking is killing
Palestinian flower growers.
Majed Hadayed said, “It’s a major

pain. They look like they’re having fun,
carrying heavy items and fitting into small spaces.
They are more likely to die on Thursday.”

In video footage shown this week
Hadayed gleefully fed two truckloads
of the flower growers to sheep.

Controversial Masked Indignation

Mosquito of human rights,
Unprecedented private pain, sound and hurt,
Monet declines opposition.

Gangs in degradation and suffering,
Police investigations, motion backed,
Handgun commissioner demonises natives.

Stolen frequencies form the heart,
Ethical apology in broad daylight,
Brandishing young people upon Europe.

Religions’ Roses Online

Black market prices for roses are rising,
Religious men are advertising,
But the email bid was declared void,

Warn Valentines Day, it’s banned,
Monks, men of the cloth and sacred singers
Meltdown after a rare auction,

Remove all red items, roses, papers and gifts,
Men are universal but religion has to audition,
But down the back of the sofa causes disappointment

Nothing of Anything

On an afternoon almost wholly without incident,
an elderly man is entering a lions’ enclosure with
a whip and a chair; he has been told there are no

hospital beds available. The veteran becomes worried
and suspects he is ill-equipped to prevent a mauling.
He is pleased with his makeshift defence, but for all the

gutsy endeavour the lions have the better of things.
In the evening, a nurse agrees that the man looks much
worse than before. He is moved to a cubicle with a door.

From Gentle Elbows

from nearly running from our feet from along the fence
from a spot to watch our cordial practice wars from
before the next war scheduled to see its protests

from an image to impeach the audience from sharing a mask
from the group you're held from through the recruiters
from smiles whispered from one eye-catching ear to another's

from the rose-colored banter of cardinals from cotton-fields
with a tenor from a pink council striking from offering
giants candy from belly rivals from foreign work tactics

Iraq City Scene

An Interior Ministry official was dealing with his house,
A box of candy, a suicide bomber, insurgents
A sheikh (recently freed) and four others wounded.

The turbines stopped, plunging the City into darkness.
Amid restrictions and rocket fire, the only power:
cars driving along the darkened streets.

No one will be watching television late into the night
To see if there are any upsets. Political rallies are not allowed;
The most famous candidate has not been seen in public.

Expensive Mad Order

To impress the waitress at Cassandra's Restaurant
(where desperate protesters are eventually fed),
a crazy man is scoring a point about the difference between

agonizingly dwindling currency transparency
and foundering under the grander divergent turbulence
of a one-money slum government.

The smugly closed stores pull in aspirational civilians,
who looted them to steal some trash before it's chopped up.
He merely borrows the trash, in the trappings of a moral.
