Two poems by Nancy Aldersmith

Two poems
by Nancy Aldersmith

Flamboyant Assassin

Flamboyant assassin,
laconic loquacious one,
split personality you charm and deceive.

You dance a systematic, synchronized ballet,
pirouetting clumsily, twirling
faster and faster toward unspeakable truth.

Paths are narrowing now,
there’s little left to do in this world -
but proceed frenetic and calm with lightning speed.


Chainsaw of Events

At dawn, a wailing chainsaw
sprinted unevenly
through the purple desert.

A lizard
crept, audaciously,
on the feather bed.

Later that morning,
distraught, a violin
flew through the rainforest.

This caused the world to collapse.
