Mark DuCharme

from Complicated Grief
Conjunctive Batman Thrills

I looked at the set & was spilled
By its startled eyes
Elk rhythm blunders
Economies of bird-in-cage

Rattled sentences blossoming
Once upon a shadow
Or anything else you’d likely spoil
Like a cage of lost children

Here is one: think meager
When the scrawl of night sits down in wonder
Or blunder. It doesn’t matter which. If intrigued
Please complicate noontime shadows

Scrawl penitent as a rook in lamb’s clothing
Vindicate corruption with corruption in a letter of 3,000 words
Find new ways to say goodbye
Or wander off in shadows, ’til the heat of night bleeds
