Jeopardy In The Water

Poem By Michael Witkowski

swimming with
dinosaurs. this
future i need to fathom
and digest
their Armoured
skin repels me like
the tingle of onion
vapours in my eyes
seasoned brown
the trace of many
sunbaths in open air
and assault by coarse
air, bile from within
and other maladies
their shape still resembles
their kind but alas
flowing away to the vague
and nondescript
their steps in water
proceed like crocodiles
or snakes- but aged
and decaying
will all beauty in the water
drwaw my eyes away from
the scaly legged tanks -
I hope so.

in your belly and only to set
your lower regions ablaze

Visit her or visit her not- I cannot settle
While neglect might be mournful
gut muscles grumble- and legs shiver
but memories set in as a ray of honey

Cinnamon Goat

A right cinnnamon goat he was
cinnnamon peppered him on
shy on the dance floor
thought himself be stepping forward

The Slushy Fate of Cheese With The Mantis

The cheese undressed from its packaging
it felt oh so bare and tawdry but hoped


I am scared by the fire
I am scared by my self
i- whose force unknown
may drag this hand into the red


how hurt
transplants itself from nerve
to nerve
spreads like a flush
