pentecostalthudTo Mark Hartenbach's previous piece

even the sparrows are calling for my head

two fingers of bourbon left
& everything else
as incomplete
unpaid bills 
stuck to the bottom
of my sole
i've scraped the pinata clean
for one last surprise
zen interpolation
is no longer an alternative
expression & structure
but coincidental bop
definition a laughable term
neo-conceptual throat noise
& irritating feedback
fly buzz of multiplicity
animates temporarily
but doesn't punctuate
maybe resolution is for drunken gods
& the recently deceased
maybe consolation
is the most i can hope for
