The Mezunian

Die Positivität ist das Opium des Volkes, aber der Spott ist das Opium der Verrückten

Smoky Sonnet

Accompanying music

Sweet or spicy, ¿who can scent

brimstone watercolor flooding

buckets brimmed of pavement meant

bent below the toes of bloody

skullcap shrooms in dusty noon —

{ guess I best bring out the broom } —

tombs so late & all so soon,

cheering chilly autumn gloom?

Colored gray won’t keep me sober;

drink before the season’s over —

To you ghosts, let’s toast October.
