curling the omnivorous plenipotentiaries by Heller Levinson

we lay waste
combining predisposition & drought
omniscience & breakfast cereal
the swallow smoothes with liquid
cankers an ominous gravy

to shunt the rhadamanthine shutters
jibs stay
the triumvirates
the canals are dirty
the craving –
to come dressed like a gorgeous ocean liner
percolating on the rims
of Arcadian rainbows
