The dogeared person

What’s been doing lately? A drawl: oh little a brain
swelling in its sleep where mom lost her eye;

it’s a mime that misled this moody goody two-shoes
patting oil on that two-faced simulacrum of decency

that rubbed off in smidgeons on me; in utero
we hear our tails click like stereos of long time

we were sentenced to the each of us from Cambria
on to the slink of life we learned not to stink in

slowly, though the musk wafts around now and then
beating in, quite like a crowd of inquisitors

stoking their muskets in the smoke of fried men
who didn’t see fit to overcook both sides,

not quite.
