Professor Plum


A Christmas Poesy


I poured myself
down the hallway
my hips

and flanks enticingly
swaying just like a drunk
Christmas tree with

awkward ornaments
flying off in all
directions (Clattering

and Shattering)
so shards are in
the carpet. I’m a

happy Christmas
shrub spinning
without a mouth

flexing my appendages
in only my tighty-whities
singing “Levon” and

“Nowhere Man”
and other carols out
of the window

just like Scrooge did it.

    I read this once and loved it so much I forgot to say anything.
    I just ran out the front door yelling YESSS!
    with my arms in the air and laughing like a maniac
    only I was wearing yoga pants and a zipped up hoodie.
    still,
    people got it. (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
