Wanda Swim Strunk

Electric Van Gogh - Poem by Wanda Swim Strunk

Ties are a noose
When pulled tight
Can strangle someone silent
Unless they are the strong and silent type
Collars of black and white
Like a chastity ring
Meant to close down the throat
Unless they are secretly deep throated
Badges of valor
Lack Lipstick rings
Double digit down fall
On an Upswing
Zippers are a chained link fence
To keep the dog in
Howdy neighbor
Frankenstein-ed into suspicious routines
Out the rear window
Space invaders in the living room
Leak in thru black umbilical cords
Electric Van Gogh
Brings to life a picture
No one in their left mind would paint
