“Mom! We have a situation…”

It’s “check, Matey” to acknowledge fellow travelers
onboard this ‘Ship-of-No-One’s-Fools’
dropping anchor in favorable waters

Scenes are a-brewing on a heated burner
– a mix of cunning, artistry, and angst –
firing blankety-[no name]-blanks,
pot-shots bringing-down the Devils Brigade
of the dishonorable ‘Judas-type personality’
given to flighty, often ambiguous, plots

Sparing no amount of paper, reducing mountains of notations
to rolling hills of unfound allegations
gone up in smoke by artful magicians’ sleight of hand
and undistinguished lines of omission,
alarming yet benign to one’s integral, overall picture
portrayed by an unnatural-borne poet on a kamikaze flight
detrimental to his own unbalanced position
set atop a wall, eggs-pertly versed in flash-fiction,
and seated among reminders of Hieronymus Bosch,
misaligned when the devil made me his bitch
