Lame-A - Poem by Michael Witkowski

streaks of sun bless my
where not a time begins
all exasperations end

mustn't thou learnt to
swim or can't ye- thou canst
learn it cheaper in
a club - her swipe
next to: what are
you mumbling?

a lamb hums her
explosive pronounced t's
the sesame to her mind
always straightly linear
behind the tool of t's hides
it wants rage to somersault

not jog or walk- they
challenge poise - equilibrium
not. Scales are tipped to
one side but which things?
if sesame's environment
tightens muscles for

a benign expression,
then my sun wakes

    I think this kind of stuff is something a mother could -possibly- like.
    But what is it doing on a poetry site?
    What is it?
    Are delusions pleasant?
    Forget that I commented.
