Debates on probity
in public life are
for entrepreneurs
of argot.
They entertain but
are otherwise empty.
When we follow
dissimilar lexicons
how can our lingo be one?
A downbeat litigation
turns a politico
into a comic
or crusader:
the fount of many stirrings.


When bored go bald: lustihood is another lap.
In sorrow there is search. Happiness holds us.
Her body aided with the booties, betrayed her
too: damages for dependence.
Like the phiz, colors on ilka palette are diverse.
Tone or texture helps  in highlighting the contrast.
Managing, the still small voice matters, rest is of
itsy-bitsy relevance.

In Order

Our fieriness did not bake
any abiding brickwork.
That is the offshoot
of excess
and its unwieldiness.
Rightness is worthy of mirroring.
When strung in a sentence
it seems flawed
as the timeworn fails
to score in a belletristic setting.
Familiar tunes
lay the course
for uncounted thoroughfares,
some unworthy of transit.
