Breathing Rated

 

craven menses

a textured innuendo polish

 

philatelic removal garners

acronym engravers named

forging the fastest lettering

 

better served as brushfire onslaught

 

a bell view

chiming montage to delay

enclosing

 

a tense bel canto revelation

 

the play renewed

on a braver stroke

senses a slow turn

 

to tell

the brazen rapture

its last gasp

 

measures its pleasured respiration

 

 

 

Fun and Prophet

 

The linear

met retrospective entities

previously hidden

 

where the chiseled glyph curves

 

Cassandra

her message a twisting

inventory

 

meaning shifts its moment

 

a vacuum away

from tiding the breath events

cresting over

 

the wrath of uncomprehending seas

 

 

 

 

Building On

 

a legend of sepulchral finesse

fought standards bearded and borne

to ease their plated utterance

 

long before

cultural replication frontons failed

 

the bestial pillar pressed granite

baring thoughtful passage caring

where finite stress filters berated

 

pelota bagels

missing grated forfeit declarations

 

under grounded noumena where

beverage filter reduction templates

bartered sun-drenched categories

 

the best agenda follows least

 

 

 

Spice Jarred

 

vindaloo memoir compendium

 

*

 

a resurgent tamarind splendor

plasters enamor throttles past

an impaneled lectern samosa

 

dotted remarks. . .implicit in the move

channeled past the tensing presence

 

its own tautology

a tamarind grammar sentenced

to slow diffusion

 

*

 

interred demotion platters infuse

locomotion pillars turning untracked

its manner closing a skinned motif

 

*

 

willing the channeled present to dissent

 

*

 

a alowly-flavored vice frigate

commanded ancient spice runs

garam masala tandoori aboard

 

long breaths leading to stolen shores

on southern guard against crest breaks

 

its memory facets a vinegar spice

delay revealed

 

*

 

a somnolent vision prevails

 

 

 

 

Pyrrhic Victory Celebration

 

the gestural charisma

of a vested intonation seeker

 

events past choosing

dilemma-measured template data

replacement winners

 

complexion warriors hang

a color-wheeling effigy montage

to mirror its best acclamation

 

what festering continued

while battle surgeons failed to heal

 

a sneaking invitation divested
