30 – Fictionalized Misleading Spin

a top blurring the narrative into dizzy lines

defines our current government

bottled and sold with snake oil

and a pack of player’s light king size please

not now I have a headache sensationalized

lies on whim leads to tragic midway accident

spun of the friction of the lead

dictionary spins on, clanking and groaning,

as if the spinning earth itself would split

but plausible – so true –

leaves me with nothing, no ideas

the emptied bottle of gin

French-kiss bureaucrats

the spic and spac of sanitized sense

frictionless meaning leading to policed fictions

jumping through hopes

fictionalized misleading spin

makes the drains run backwards in Alaska

the dryer leave all the clothes still soaked

the wheel of fortune telling in Harperland

same old same old boy games

I am dizzied to the point of incompetence

it all comes out at the laundromat
