RHINE RIVER WHERE

 

Rhine River where

run downstream surreal touch

of wizardry the cackling howlings

of a coyote whimpering sorrow

thru ecstatic fury of Pleiades &

a few other skits written down

in toilet seat bursts of inspiration

what was once is now and we

are to just while away hours with a

board & a sheet whittling sculpture

out the rocked masses of defusion

rattling out bikers & hikers in

bars & cars & stars of patriotic

brainchild of trust thought up

by vitriolic think tanks left

in isolation tanks one night

until the mind was left over night

until the mind was left in

frosty cover sacraments earned

in ritualistic faiths questioned

all authority & conclusion

the sullen rolls of water

traveled upstream against the current

successfully running race against time.
