idleness ethic poetics, take 6

then came along while whiling innocently
as an innocent by a softly flowing bank,
watching birds bathe downy secrets,
the concrete image in a witch

caricature bearing brutality
in three-dee photography and bent
on spreading all over all saucers
born golden, banana boatloads

of butter hired to pour pure sour
all over a harmless party of gents
gazing at what gents naturally enjoy
gazing at, like chicken stuffed in soft

tacos leaking poultry drippings,
a simple cuisine whipped to expressly whet
the whistler’s balsam reed, agitate
the appetite and bring the moral smile

for a vessel otherwise woe-saddled
while on weary sojourn – you sanctimonious,
hypocritical, fuckheads and bitches
– hey you never spoke or fought for me,

oh no one ever did, and so I gaze oh gaze
do I so hard at every pretty piece
I can and I ain’t hurting no body – so
go fuck yourselves, ye worse than all

put-together puritans and their ethics
insipid and evil as they were and are
though less insipid and evil than thee
for thou art they multiplied mountainous.


About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
