Clogged Pipe Dream


on Tuesdays
the blue skin of sky braids the air with sun
green girls with red feathers from baggy buses inside come wreathed
their eyes primed to kiss fire and swell pores to pregnant raindrops
i scramble my brains before my eggs
and i read Keats before i eat
and i jerk off before i cough
for i was born for morn defeat
to mourn this clogged thus pipeless dream
turn on the news
and float downstream

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
