September Poem 26

We are excited to announce stances

That the judge could hear.

He ordered that all motions be filled

On news of the Honors College and especially

Highlighting the adventure’s achievements

Each indicated separately on the seven counts filed

By district attorney Mark Duncan.

Lefty, would that you said they sound like

They instituted commandments for the faithful.

July Poem 17

I was losing track of the conversation.

Pliny the Younger and I were quick

To rip down the flier

Before it was his turn again.


Flames full of over the top action.

If you want the flame to run, paper burns faster.


Tommy lit a match and dabbed the story,

The commandment, and turned it in his fingers.


Daughter pictures thought they had

Set trees up in the way but instead

Arranged them on the floor where they were

Made into a possibility of the other side.
