Shrike

Switchflip levering;

Why sanction the players?

Nothing & Something

Too many uncovered alleyways –

A shrike of assemblage*

Jaggers and judders,

Old-timey fragments

Settle and plunder

*Wiktionary says that shrike are a family of passerine birds known for imposing the uneaten portions of small birds and rodents on thorns

Methods & Habits

Smithereens go sideways,

And

In quiet moments –

Resplinter & Scatter

Ever finer still-

That which we cannot see,
It opens paths to mystery
Inner feeling ever shifts
What before & what next befalls?
Last year whence?
And next year hence?
Where did we go?
What shall we do?
A vine to climb
Up mountain spine

To help illegals
Cross alive
All the way
To urban cores
Where cops engage
Denying war
But mix & math
And meth & Pez
We gather up crews for the Rez
We wake & bake & take the cake
We swarm the streets & meet the heat
We shape up, ship out, straighten & fly
Rocks revolt ‘gainst fracking’s sway
Our mega-tortoise planet-bearer,
Our bees & trees & refugees,
So save the date
And make it three
An adventure it would surely be
