A Serious Turn

Along the great receding hairline,
conversation tends toward the maniacal.
Take these braised hearts, for example.

Over my dead body.

One agenda supplants another
with firmer conviction.
I admit, my diction hasn’t been the same
since… Since that thing that happened
that none of us can sufficiently articulate.

Well now all anyone does
is twist and shout, followed shortly
by delirium tremens
and a run on the bank.

I’m no longer comfortable
with the shape of my skeleton.
Best be passing on…
