loteria

the loteria

a game 

of bingo

perchance but

if your tabla

finds your

MELON 

a cantaloupe

variety

in the sphere

of a horned 

melon 

it might make

you sing

like a

can’t a lope

or

cantare lupus

roman for

crazy

they just called #9
6 people
before the nurse
will call
mine #
venipuncture is
unnecessary
just
swab my ankle
where my crocs
rubbed a blister
and ran
plenty of yolk ~
signage
to insure minimal
interaction
with staff who
giggle
distant
white foam
chatter that might
lull me to sleep
if I were at the beach

SQUEALING

stuck
injecting
in a tiny trap
house
on a green
island
raining
a jungle of
cable
internet a
septic
tank
I run a
maze
grow bananas
wait
for delivery
departure
line up
for my plastic
sippy cup
eat
pancakes
stack
lion’s mane
Bromantane
for breakfast
nootropics
family
replacement
new tropical
smoothie
maker
I’m a
prime member
of the Amazon
my work
in the garden
a duck pond
an empty
kiddy pool
over it
an antler
bromeliad
sprouting
hunting trophy
a certification
of my triumph
and
the plot
next to it?
my head
repatriated
from my tail
still moving
