September Poem 8: The Part Where We Begin the Bidding

We will begin the bidding at fifteen

Hundred dollars. So begin acting on

Instinct as I stare into your left eye.

Many trays of lime juice and salt people

See in his unfinished work were direct

With an upturned plastic cup of your time.

Now, let’s bid on his apocalyptic

Movie franchise speech. A small part of the

Speech. The part that flows so quickly it comes

Out as one long word. The part that pushes

Men through the doorway. The part that began

To ooze a stinking, green puss. The part where

He was hunched and whimpering like a dog.

The part where you deny the evidence.
