Cage Of Ribs

Desire draws one

into a future crib

... the soul encased

in a cage of ribs.

*

WORD QUEUE

*

Like bees around a bloom
many thoughts swirl
in a writer's brain.
Is it a mystery that
they line up obediently
in a queue to be penned
one word at a time?

*

SATURN RINGS

*

The rings of Saturn
make one desire
a cage
rather than infinity.
 *

Footnote:
Yevgeny Yevtushenko: If one is
used to a cage he will weep for
a cage. (written after visiting
a mink concentration camp
in the US as there are sable
ones in Russia)

*

KIDNAPPING

 *

There are veterinarians
who don't release
pets brought to them
until a bill is paid
in full.
Imagine what would
happen if a human children's
hospital did that.
It is the polar opposite of
the Hippocratic Oath.

 *
MONGEESE

*

Seeking refuge
under wild
mangering trees of mango
Hawaiian mongeese
hide from trappers.
