city heat in hard
black attire, superconductive
glow of a serpent chasing
asphalted lay of holy land--
whose bedraggled pulse snorts
in bloody laughter.
roadside augurs fester while
tying the laces of traffic, through
passed out archways.
bird's beaks are broken open,
in mad waterless monologues.
as the nucleus of this wizened apple,
casts oblique shadows... for curly cue-ing worms
sped billboards imminently flattening the world,
under a Columbus-blue sky.
ice cream trucks mangle dueling theme
songs, sloughed off by sensational tides of kids.
distraction's lustful lick, an informationless
tombstone busy with curves.
here, whole-body shaves of renouncement...
and steady showers of salt, will make
worthy the truest Himalayan meditation.
