Mailer Daemon

The Mailer Daemon’s mother
never loved him.

Other Daemons’ mothers hug:
his always shoved him.

That’s why he causes
such obstruction.

Random Fragments of the Psyche

When random fragments
of the psyche
coalesce haphazardly
to seek exoneration
of their sins,

not one fragment
of them wins.

Sprite Blood

Well-meaning though it might have meant to be,
the sprite, at night, has lent him such ennui,
he’s seriously contemplated killing it.
Sprite blood! Oh, how he would relish spilling it!

“… but thinking makes it so”

When one thought seizes
hard upon another –
tries to tell it
it’s its brother –

oh boy,
awkward dance.

One will more than likely
lose its head,
the other lose its pants.
