Comfortable Leather Mittens
mints

Tense unbent digits in lateral contact
 1
A lasting conversation with the cumulous clouds
 2
Please throw me the gourmet shuttlecock
 3
So I can attach it to the snout of a monorail,
 4
for I have purchased Gorilla Glue.
 5
 
 
Incomposed demolition of fetal flesh
 6
Torn covering of the unblessed bovine
 7
Still moist and thriving as it unpeels,
 8
dithering between deliverance and departure –
 9
it chose to compose itself as our mittens.
 10
 
 
A momentary glimpse of the Berger King
 11
That transformed pain into comfort and commodity
 12
We repossessed the derelict prodigy
 13
as we stooped on our cheesy elbow macaroni
 14
And sang Happy Birthday to the inanimate mute
 15
wearing our comfortable leather mittens.
