Poem in Asses of Parnassus

My poem “Read My Apoca-Lips, Baby” is up on the inimitable Asses of Parnassus site, the place to go to for “short, witty, formal poems.” These long ears are starting to grow on me. == :^)

Thermodynamics (a Tanka)

Entropy grows
Past the point of no return
Time’s arrow flies on
Toward the heat-death future
A fate sealed by mathematics.

Everything You Need (a Tanka)

The allure is strong:
Power, wealth; reputation
Everything you need
For a life of suffering
Ruled by desire and fear.

Poetry

Hunter and Prey (a Tanka)

Eyes glow in the dark
Dead twigs crack under footfall
The prey hears nothing
The circle of life must close
Sharp clean claws will finish it. 11 more words

Islamic Creep

A useful idiot has been elected.
The alternative? – She was rejected.
So dysfunctional France
Staggers on in a trance,
And more terror attacks are expected.
