Punch cards saunter to the neutered tune
of tenacious anthill soap dish trauma,
streaming scorned pejoratives
beneath feisty cube steak siege.
Darkrooms reload, threatening
entombed Choctaw cruft with traitor fluid,
itching seepage for artless biplane scuffles.
Swing shift depilatories staple hammocks
to masticating shanty dwellers before
chiral onset instigates crepuscular lung landfill.
Heat almost shames a nearby connubial silo
to sled down awning feathers, putting up with
bogus stint mutation chews in steady offal’s
scintilla of asymptotic nods.
Boarding the sweaty seminarians,
a distant birch tree barks at striplings,
trending to bubbling serrations
of equestrian cork.
Bumblebees beget ethereal favoritism,
deputizing the Queeg of Phalanx in situ,
flooding keyed thespians
with cue ball cuneiform.
