Songs like Some


Some added spice,
some rapidly sly fox,
some sensible shade
some enamored guide

Some pregnant spirit come to Ahithofel
some swarm of locust/bees upon Immanuel
some yellow sauce in the spice of the East
some fountain-land for fertile yeast

Some swift water
some Cupid's Bow
some decent fling
some lingering thing

Some artist blue with tongue of red
some lost mule repeating its footsteps
some Boy; s philosophy strong with preceps
some flowering dream in the land of Zen

Sour-salt encased in green
salamander with revolting eyes of mud
Cinderella swathed in chimney-ash
Striperella full with chest and bare-buttocked

Salve, censor!
centurions in eagle plume
stinking and sticking pace
sanguine symbology

Cyst-like salmon flavors
sink the single eye
sap, the glitter of rubber
slice the Slinger's song

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
