A Poem by John Pursch

Skinny Porch Kerplop

Signage loops to menthol hexagon retraction,
flitting football Corsicans to root pier prostitution specks
of poured Othello arias and aromatic favoritism's
nether dermal afro fiction why compendium mistake.

Coopers denote chancre hopping cobbler grottos
by an exiled exhalation's scarab, harrying wheeled arrowsmiths
with purchased proboscis scaffold census sensor dust,
polled several milliseconds into centigrade repulsion dreams.

Seven dregs decay in sparse entitlement
Rapunzel efforts gone frantically antique,
rubbing amphorae into sleepy sigh ballistic frenzy,
soiling prestidigitation's leitmotif with loincloth lotion legalese
and legerdemain's logistic porpoise whims.

Tinsel doves corrode in caustic flip card urges,
primping the paltry blitz incineration pool girl's
imitation sloth toupee with schoolhouse jail oregano coulisse,
delicious to the touch of sutured sober hammer gals
from fossil action college fee reduction igloo martyr gender photographs,
burnt yesterday for semi-swollen tundra deals gone virulent
in midway barn anthologies.

Covert rickshaws rise in scalding pawing fractions,
sobbing mental proctor staples of pedaling gas colonic pone,
elusive yet befriending pedometer guppies
in proud saline hosiery's ecstatic seamstress zoom.

Occasions orchestrate refracted flossing speech sagacity
within suburban mining stallion gall bone douche repair fee lossage twine,
imploring skeet petunia backers to berate anarchic logging thrivers
into maypole undulation rites and skinny porch disturbance pleas
of snowy loaf intent, her haystack's nebulous pomposity
turned quizzically to midnight pancake rescue gape
of turban flame from neutral fairies flown halfway
for drowning pleasure breech pad ballpark shamble
burping bleach kerplop extrusion mayhem.
