Ryland Alan Brown

Banana roll wryly
banally randy worn lanyard
any bald warlord, nary brawny
or raw

Drawn wan anally by bran
drab brandy and lawn
Banyan drawl drolly

Nylon band dally on barn
narrow lab drown on dryland
lad blown away

Droll labor ban, yawn
darn yarn wand and drywall
born on lowland
a lord

Bad Poem

it stands a full 60"
off the ground-
that’s chest level to the average
American male

there’s enough chrome to blind
a pig looking for an acorn
if he were so inclined
lord willing

by god, he’ll find it. Perfect
last I checked
perfect was good enough
for the girls we go with

Go where? Anywhere
as long as its with god and
the girls we go with
and the blind pig
in my truck

Intersection @ Parque del Buen Retiro, Madrid

I wonder what it would be like to be stuck in a roundabout. Preoccupied with finding a route of egress, would the grandeur of life be overlooked? Or transversely, if distracted by the same redundant scene rolling along in front of you, would opportunity go unnoticed?
