Lactose Intolerant in The Dairy State


Wisconsin is no place
for those who are lactose
intolerant, but I enjoy
the hops and believe this
city has a cheap apartment
for me to dwell in as I
count my sheep and dream
beyond brats and pigskin

One day I'll set a
way point for California
where the sand is stained
with medical green, where The Beats
once frolicked when controversy
was their flag at the peek
and Bukowski accidentally
created a wastoid philosophy

But until then I'll waste
away with the venison, victimized
by rednecks and rot before a
LCD screen displaying reality
TV passing the time of the
ignorantly blissful types
concealing weaponry and enjoying
their lives

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
