Twisters 7ish

Mt. Rushmore

Carved visages deface a sacred site, a culture destroyed.

Sioux warriors long forgotten, white Presidents resident.

A mountain renamed. #lqw

Djinn in a Bottle

My desideratum long forgotten, each wish gone astray – the djinn a trickster-god, deceitful.

A final wish, unspoken, ungranted.

Carpets and Drapes

The xanthous bride walked the aisle, her hair colour indeterminate beneath her ivory veil.

She dyed it so often I couldn’t remember…

Night-terrors

Crepuscular creatures, flitting on the shallow light of dawn.

I yowl, calling out for freedom.

“SHUT UP, F***IN CAT!” is their reply

Bubble Pop
They called it Bubble Pop, the false advertising promise of eternal youth.
We got the change we were asking for, but only in coins.
.
Silent Death
The gecko crawls, a silent Death in the night.
His quarry trembles beneath the electric lights, an artificial moon misguiding.
Crunch.
.
Flight
A slow pirouette, the end to her waltz with the stars –
a long cabré, with gravity’s rainbow eclipsed, only an instant, too brief.
.
Monkey Boy
I imagine that the first ape/
believed that tails were great/
his ecaudate form/
wasn’t the norm/
and he had trouble finding a mate
.
The Linguist’s Lament
He smiled when asked his profession, armed with his lil joke.
Haplology, which isn’t the study of happiness.
Not in this day and age!”
.
The Ambassador
His proboscis swelled, slowly palpitating as he consumed her fluids.
I shuddered inside, not wanting to offend the ambassador.
