holy cows

achieve something
something old
if not eternal
face the animal
and tame it
for a toy
*

for so much less and more
pebbles are playing in a pot
shaken and stirred with sticks
of bone
behind the unlocked door
*

my job is to sweep and scrub
the temple from the ceiling
down
to the floor
soiled by so many prayers
unanswered
and all the holy cows
the maintainance crew never
returned from lunch
water and air will simply have to do
for now
*

he sugared murderers with the sweetest noise
other voices all inside
where it’s nice and cold
when the time machine malfunctions
intentionally
you can’t prove it
without access to your armory
a little nesting never hurts
but you must remember to count your eggs
opening the hatch
I said, Hutch this is it
hand over your breakfast
*

tell me straight
no I won’t
why not?
straight is too wide
for my load
what?
I told you once a thousand times
a dragon doesn’t look like a dragon
and wagons prefigured the roads
*

sometimes I can feel the back of the wall
against me
it’s interesting to note
but it isn’t a requirement
*
