gutters,books or pews

dogs chase mustard rabbit clouds
through elastic battlefields 
of gangrene razor blades 
watched by bayonet hand 
grandfather clocks 
exhaling times fuming
sickening mustard breath 
from the enemies trench’s

smart bears playing chess in parks 
die of constipation 
when they get lost 
in carnivorous 
life’s picnic basket

lambs use thanksgiving bird beaks 
to pluck the tears from their eyes 
while the farmer’s wife
dresses them in rosemary beads
teaching them to pray 
to the three blind mice 
before the altar 
of the carving knife 
while nurturing 
them for hells ovens
