Like a plug
not a fire hydrant
pull it out
not coitus interrupt us;
or insert, do not immerse or worse.
Separate like bend until broken
words better not spoken
Given like a dime store token
but found in or on the dollar tree.


Whether in Autumn
or when you fall,
It all has a quarter hour of being famously
aimlessly, carelessly, caressingly
Like a cord that unwinds.
Shakespeare and Plato pugnaciously courageously
bend the rules like a five below special
that broke the porcine porcelain bank.
