On Monday, It’s Back Again

It’s striking. The pain.
A useless question
sprinkled on the insanity
of the nurse’s-station wallpaper,
and all of the white tile,
crushed by shifts in a disgusting structure.
The clank of a halyard
or perhaps a construction tool
can’t be seen through the frosted glass,
and the plum-colored blinds
seem ready to carve me up.

Furry Mane on Display

I’ve determined I’m a lion in a zoo.
A zoo in Kansas.
And you won’t believe this, Dorothy!
I have no courage.
Who in a zoo has any courage?
I am a relic being watched.
Really, honestly, doing nothing for the world.
