patriotic parading progressions

Quotations bouncing off
inner sound tubes
flooding wax aqueducts
with furry
and mighty menstrual
calculations

It’s difficult to make out
the syllables of the
foreign wording to
modern melodies
and catch phrase
jingles

Seven hundred
times a day
this practice has been
multiplied
magnified
crucified
initialized
and memorized

This side of society
has forgotten
the practice of
past natives
long since
rotting in their
consecrated burial site
under an in-ground swimming pool
in Scottsdale, Arizona

Excited children’s
cannonball splash
drenches all of those who
happen to be near by

War ship’s cannonball tore apart
the buried man’s abdomen into
several hundred bloodied pieces
reducing it by multiplication

No maps or records
indicated these chronicles’
actual existence
or to the whereabouts
of the old dead
once proud inhabitants
of this new
plastic cluster fuck
that has emerged
as the new
heavyweight

Obscured suspicion
and conspiracy publications
are semi-solitary
in their examination
of integrity, creditability,
and relative matrimony
of everything
above
and below

I like the riffing here, what's
emerging in this work. Good stuff.
