a genuine photograph taken by a relation,
of Wonder Woman commandeering a
Manhattan avenue by aft. daylight,
leading children of the neighborhood and
their guardian angels, the NYPD, in a
rousing calisthenics warmup routine,
for it’s the day of witches, goblins, masquerading,
and pre-internet, nice, sweet trolls no older
than six years of age, Wonder Woman too, the rigors of an
evening of search and recovery, collecting the
well gotten treasure *****, found by early dusk’s
s l o w l y disappearing light, amidst stunned,
aimless wandering adults
and miscellaneous grownups,
wonting & wondering:

*is innocence still a thing?

staring at the sun
pointing at everyone
what are you trying to prove?
you're better? they ain't done

give a man a chance
to change a circumstance
no telling what he can do
he might make you **** your pants

staring at the sun
when all is said and done
this ain't some kind of a game
and nobody ever won

it is a sad world for writers when 10 year olds have easy access to filthy ****, but poets get censored
another i threw together for my lovers...stop wasting your time and making me a better writer haha

syllable counts are fun to play with and with so many variations, you can get a good sense of how rhythm works...of course rhythm depends a lot on vowel sounds, where one might place a comma etc too

Your face is so ugly
Your mom is so ugly
Your dad is so ugly
Your sister is so ugly
Your brother molested you
Your uncle bought you a beer
Your aunt slapped you for telling the truth.

You have turned into an internet troll.
No fault of your own, your anti-social behavior.
You were molested after all so lashing out on
the internet is an unhealthy replacement for therapy,
but you can't talk to your family, so nobody can advise
you to seek counseling, so you smoke a vape and support
Donald Trump and call everyone who might like Obama
the devil and it was all because your family ******.

In the beginning there was god and god said this person
will be ordained to troll the internet and that person was you!

your eyes just for tonight,
i will kiss your forehead
and you will be alright
they say say blood is thicker, then every
colour fades to white.

our planetary existence has been
and forever your dreams they
will be mine

we were raised to be our future
our past is over and i can
that together
we'll all crumble down
my sweet little kitten
don't you

these pointed daggers on our heads keep us
tacked into our beds
we only awaken
at the very end
all this time i spent thinking
enemies were friends

this rainbow will soon die
there is no time for us all
right now

take my hand and never let me
we missed the start of our own
for now and forever together we'll
the heros of our own

wasting time trying to fix the
instead of making these dreams
