Howitzer against an out-house...

It's the remineralization of teeth that allow for a cat-gnawing show

or the burning of smallish dogs when Smokey the Bear is your foe

Revenge equals retaliation as grass knows when a mower will mow

Frozen water's snow, a loose woman's a hoe, a female deer is a doe

A howitzer against an out-house is one shitty mess even set on low

shafts shifted with warming impermanence rankle those who know

to watch growths fibroblastic, gestational, tumid & multiloculated,

off-centered, asymmetrical, encrusted, trophoplasmic & delineated

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Miss Teresa Teng: she's out there; she's of the 7,000 million. Her reincarnated soul is (possibly as mature as) 17 years old as of A.D.2012. Relatedly: Ernest Borgnine has crapped out. He has taken his beauty secrets to the grave.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
