scene-sketching practice #1

some fast food chain for now anonymous
is busting out in sparkly smiles on this
which must be elevated to one historic
segment that can’t quite be called a night.

So in this dusty segment
the tanker driven by
a notorious drunkard – or known
back home as a notorious drunkard

and where few shall exude surprise
– ran aground and created instant
chicken patties. And the earth is about
to drown in the sweet and the sour.

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.
