Treasure Island

Confidence is the Key. To a Worthwhile Jelly-Roll!


1.
If I had a bruise
On a tooth.

Insanity
Would attribute pride
To my smile.

A Jack O’ Lantern’s
Illumination.
Caused by the corporate
Sponsorship
Of
Yankee Candle!

Allowing flames
To kiss
The gum-stub-vanity.

Of a gap
In ego stretch.

2.
Contour lines-pulsate inside window, shop, glass.
I sell my stare to an important nothing.
I am eye to eye. With less important strangers.
They tell me:
“This nothing is black
Like an oil derrick’s jism.”

3.
It’s
The
Retired
Wri nkles.

Praising
The
Progress
OfProtuberance.

Weighing
Down
A
J aw
dropping
Fantasy.
A
Dried
Line< br>Of
Drool
For
Baptismal
Purposes.
5.
It has become
Glass
Case clear

I am no more a bruise on a tooth
Then I am the puss from a proud bed sore.

6.
Where have clean teeth been smiling?
I see no glint
Of prism flesh.

No flesh
One could
Trust.

Except
For
Those
With
Pimples instead
Of
Eyelids
And
Warts instead
Of
Taste buds
7.
Another
White mucus drip.

Off the head
That mistook a hemorrhaging wound
For a blooming rose.

8.
Obesity was a sign of wealth.
People of the states
Own the fat of the land.

Jiggle.
Jiggle.

Catch the change
If one can.
