let the trumpet moo

For years
polar bears have been planning
to put into a shredder
the mustache of a fingerless
trumpeter. I am late,
and the streetcar has left the stop.
A soiled band-aid covers the sun,
but a huge plate of scrambled eggs
must remember Akutagawa at Woodstock
and my absence on the banks of the Limpopo
the day when zebras went postal.
A man with a pillow is kissing
a cow wearing a top hat. It sounds
like a pear stuffed with broken
smartphones or a snake that has
met a toothbrush.

    TO ITS NEAR BREAKING POINT
    THE MUSTACHE SHREDDER FRACTURES FIRST
    THEN SHREDS FULL-STEAM
    THE HUMAN SITUATION FOLLOWS SUIT
    DAILY SELF-FRAGMENTING
    HISTORICIZED RITUALS
    POETIC DISCOURSE
    EVIDENT DIFFICULTY AND EVIDENT DISCOMFORT
    FINGERLESS LOVERS CAPTURE ATTENTION
    INNOCENT ROMANCE UNTIL 700 WITNESSES
    SAY THE BODY WAS THROWN OFF THE BRIDGE
    BY A FINGERLESS ACCOMPLICE
    THE CONSTANT MESS IN THE BATHROOM
    NO NEED TO ASK QUESTIONS

    • however
      the speed of fracturing and shredding has
      dramatically decreased recently whereas
      fingers grow everywhere like mushrooms after the rain
      and the bodies under bridges become kappas
      and drown the boats

  2. every day is “Lord’s Supper” for polar bears
    chasing around tourists
    sacred songs sung
    by digital cameras
    what a value
    $5 for a white bear image
    no Druids or short skirts
    one Melville book in the library
    missing pages
    untold cyclical purposes served
    untimely death
    ears removed
    crippling sound from angels
    changeless underwear
    inescapable brown

  3. NEVER A TRUE BRIDEGROOM BUT A SURROGATE
    ONE MUST BE LESS TO BE LESSENED
    PEOPLE PAINT WHITE OVER WHITE
    POLAR BEARS NEAR EXTINCTION
    THEY APPEAL TO THE HUMAN HEART
    “FEED US YOUR BABY BOYS AND BABY GIRLS”
    AND YES, THAT WOULD WORK
    CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES ARE MORE CONCERNED
    WITH AIR BAG SAFETY

  5. JUST STANDING OUTSIDE IN THE DARK
    THINKING ABOUT THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN
    IT WAS A HELL OF A POLAR BEAR BITE
    FEW LIVING PEOPLE COULD CHALLENGE
    THE DEGREE OF DAMAGE
    WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO CONQUER
    THE SUFFERING ?

    • i don’t know
      i believe epicurus had conquered it
      many other greeks too
      easily or not but they weren’t especially proud about that
      it was the usual
      but for the christians it wasn’t enough
      they decided to eliminate any kind of suffering
      by talking about unbearable suffering
      the ultimate sea of pain
      and look at us now
