the man

with a

square jaw

and bug eyes

framed fake

feathers and

watched henry

die in the

living room

on a Saturday

night

while humming

declarations of war

 

 

facial recognition software
screams "save me spiderman"
and finds comicbook religion
in the electrical storm

duckfooted angels
broken
faces split in 2
2 dimensional wings
shake holding canned ghosts

coastguard operatives
with 'i kill pirates'
tshirts load into the van
ready to hit the town

and penguins with snakes
for fingers
read their menacing poems
on street corners and
busses

where
incoherent
bodhisattvas who've
forsaken the human language
dance to traffic jam
symphonies and the shouts
of street vendors like
clowns somersaulting down
hallways full of lions
