For Quickly’s October One

Goldfish on Jupiter's Nose

like a princess whose tiara is sunk in the mire
like a pacifist, high on Liberation wine
like a pail on a fence post, envelope unstuck
like an marching army singing Jambalaya on the Bayou, I

have been questioning my position here and where and which
flip of the coin or crack in the sidewalk is to bless
or burn. Not that it's answers I'm in line for:
just reviewing my companions in fate.

  1. rich imagery – I particularly like the “turning” – the way it’s phrased by way of the coin flip or sidewalk crack – a blessing or burn – this is just amazing – so powerful
