Eternity's Refrigerator

Fasten the broken heart's pieces onto the backdoor screen before the October chill settles on the virgins draped in petals with their meek sex shivering. There's no blade of green grass burned to the brown that the executioner won't chew on. He knows how to elbow his way into eternity's refrigerator.





Spectral Breakfast

The ham and eggs that bear peeps isn't the spectral breakfast that you hoped for. I'll wake your razor. You wake my desire. The fallacious mirage is a prime target. There's nothing to prevent perversity's bloom now. Tell me the truth; do you really want your coffee black?





Burning Umbrella

He had heavy balls of ivory. In spite of their polish he was a wearisome comedy in the midst of a Carmelite fantasy. The Carmelites were ridiculous in their philanthropy. He was the final gift given and an irreconcilable hatred arose between the sea and the sky. The sky and sea were known for their treachery, so no one was willing to put down their money on possibilities and potential in the tomorrow. They all preferred the bloody broom that had done the job for the creator in the thunderstorm beneath his umbrella burning.





Whittled

Elementary shapes whittled down by odd fingers; beautiful stumps now. Her lungs exalted with old hymns that the Philistines refused to sing. The hallelujahs and hosannas harkening back on the metaphysics of the carpentry trade left her longing for a cool drink of lemonade and the dismay that lay in its bitter sweetness. He had hated her hands, but now when she caressed his face he felt the exquisite luxuries that lay beyond.
