Belittling a bitterly failed infatuation:

you despise yourself
for having fallen into it -
but you did not fall:

and save what is left
of the planet
will not be a

and I don't
know who
you are.

A Poet

The unappreciated
unremembered
stench of honesty
seeped from his pen.

Sick civilisation

praises every talent
except
the talent to be harmless.

Do they not know

that a man's soul
is in his beard -
his visiopilation
- and that those who shave
are in sore
need of salvation ?

Do they not know

that a woman's soul
is in her armpit -
her axillipilation
- and that those who shave
are in sore
need of salvation ?
