Ken L. Walker




Tasteless mouth


full of bone


Open jar of kindergarten paste


Staircase into a station to anticipate


what could be conditional whiplash


No one deserving is ever sued


Muttshacks that never see the depth


or platitude of fenced scope

Speak in a lack of leashes


and lions don’t need to talk


The news has been a flood


Downturns this Depress that Recess over there Recess for a few


Scores of countlessness Tetherball all capitalism is


An angel

with fluorescent



does a handstand for every lunchbreak cut into a desk


The disbursement of every bonus burns Every christmas tree alive


Shredded flesh on venus fly trap beds
