may i recommend to you a poetry magazine?

(i was considering the new news
about our chap who
got wasted by over eager yanks
and two phrases
from old poems condensed
in my clockwork brain
'exploded in a bloodmist'
and
'pondering frillys'

now where was that from..?
where, w-h-e-r-e..?
*the retracing of steps*
then
*click*
psychopoetica. 95. clear as a bell

aha.
my addled brain still has some merit
at least.

and i found the context
of the lines
that had branded themselves
so deeply
into my mind:)

CLOSED CIRCUIT

All life is intentional when
you're picking up the pieces
of a friend
for a body bag

Only those who've been
can vote for
or against it-
the enemy screams for blood

All life is a circle when
you're holding a friend
spitting blood
begging for his mother

Only those who send their children
can vote for
or against it-
America screams for blood

All life is perception when
the new kid next to you
you're afraid to make friends with
explodes in a blood mist

Only the dead can vote

LAUNDERING INFLATED EGOS

Puckered, your mind
is pegged out to time
yet it surprises you
that nothing there attracts
an audience;
you are washed up
your thoughts no match
for the pondering of frillies
or any other
traditional dalliance.
After the heady inebriation
of a few years
of acceptance of your ideas,
your brain is overstuffed
with unwanted words.
So the wind has come
to blow out all the cobwebs
and to make you dry out
in a way
only a shrink would understand.
