Black Shuffling Cars

A crossing wind
flutters over the lawn.
A black car shuffles down
the street as
I ease my bike into the traffic.
Only hope is for sale.
It sits like a dusty jar
left stagnant
in the basement.
I listen to the sound of the swamp
that flocks like mosquitoes
in and out of me.
Joined on the road by
other black shuffling cars,
I tense my buttocks in
preparation for
the ass fucking
I'll receive
for daring to think my own mind.
Leave a tiny spark of departing fashion
as you drain me of my will to create.
I'll dropp an arm across the table
so you can bleed me.
A crossing wind
flutters over the lawn.

    ONLY HOPE IS FOR SALE.....

    Fantastic chasing with the wind. Metaphors and imagery are so brilliant, intelligence and emotion knitted by such a skilled word-artist....I put my choice high here (if machine carries my vote) .

    About the quoted line: Thank you poet for representing our existence during this time so accurately by such submissive and artistic way...simply matchless.

    Regards,
    pranab
