MATCH SET | Guy R. Beining

point before the period
in ever lasting hell
the religious jewel quipped
after spreading so much ash.
why is it to be after
rakish stompings in fatuous
parades, he thought, that i
must swallow jars of tears
before the crater
of their world appears,
interrupting their buzz sawing
through life between daffy duck
& pop-eye with corncob
bright as yesterday's faulkner.
