«forget your past. this is your future!»
brave lil toaster, pls help me thru trauma!
never been so stumped by magnets in my life
and i’ve –
failed! – studied physics and drama
but forget the past. we’re now a housewife!
untapped potential of electricity
charging toward some shiny new future
toasted to taste with clever felicity
cause mental abrasions need no suture.
yet, equal parts of this marital bed
have led us to misshapen butter spreads;
breakfast for dinner? european urgency!
husbandry flattered with wifery misread!
and bereft of all it, his mind and head.
thus, it’s sensed: a domestic emergency.
«he’ll make time for you.»
yes, it’s sensed, this domestic emergency!
a temporal project bewitching hexes,
multiversed tricks thru primetime divergency,
all leading towards a battle between sexes.
for glamorous flourish, enigmas reversed
and radio waves found interlaced
thru superfluous rabbit holes traversed;
the times are forgotten but never replaced!
for the children, illusionary silence.
but, could this m-mastication disgrace?
could collective intent create violence
for another girl’s comedy, distaste?
do these efforts they’ve made pull out the bunny?
or leave the audience with such sweet honey?
«find the goddess within!»
to leave the audience with such sweet honey;
to travel afar thru the world’s clamor;
ambrosia to escape one for the money;
complications against fruits and glamor.
for what’s to expecting thru rain and shine?
these fruitless thoughts lead to no paradise
and thoughtful expectations, no guideline;
so, heed this proper doctoral advice
on the storks and the bees, seems simple enuf:
count your blessings and do eat all your fruit
and think not on loving as locked handcuffs
for iron cut to gold ever transmutes!
there’ll be no break and no moment unruff:
family – and twins! – do not simply compute.
