From the anthology, Monster Trees, a work in progress.

It’s Twine Time! (to Alvin Cash) It’s twine time! ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah! It’s time to twine, baby! Time to forget about it all! The latest lollipop disasters, The catastrophes dressed in nude attire, The latest bristlecone attacks Manufactured with iced fear, Riveted with barbecued bullets. Lookin’ good, baby; have mercy! It’s twine time! Passing grooving styling peeps Living lives in psychotic bondage To the ghost children, still Living fast episodes of ennui with All the random traumas, Passing all the purple bruises, The red-stained tears. It’s twine time, baby! The far-out space girls dressed in sheepskin adornments, Intense as roadside bombs, Made of acrimony and glycerin. Yeah! Them that are wearing Dancing boots made of twine! It’s twine time, baby! Ooh, ah, ooh, ah ooh ah!
