Poet Commentaries

Estate Sale

In this sale,
sketches of bluster
riveted to the poop deck,
clips of that launch
that sunk the ship
and jars of pickled bubbles
from his bathwater.

Hysterical documents too.
Years of maps tracking
the migration pattern
and the population
of bureaucrats,
reams of research
and scientific evidence
on contaminated diets;
dead would and could bees,
their carcasses rotting
from soybeans off gassing.

Little brown manilla packets
of experimental cloud seeds
sugar coated crowd please
and unminded q’s and p’s
with use and care instructions.

From his vanity
hand written eulogies
stained with DNA
