Ransoming Poem Example

I've had enough


I think I'll signal guru Bob that I've had enough
of his implicit stress therapy as he calls it
I've contacted the hunchback sperm banks
for a safe deposit box until the embrace is ended
with the last flood of disobdience
guru Bob waves his stumps
and I go nuts trying to figure out
the message behind the message
which was whatever happens
keep this out of the tabloids
I threw the Studebaker into reverse
and flamed the tires
in order to stop the madness
of hope divided by zero
as the horizon failed to recede
or vice versa being we were in reverse
years from now miners will
stumble upon these passages
and be unsure if this is the he or
the he behind the he somewhat
unable to repair the scrap heap damage
after having been repeatedly potty trained
by wrecking yard executives with cutting torches 
fat as spring worms free like sniffing hyenas
fortunately sugar appears to be universally pleasing
have we gotten to the topology segment
what's wrong with a philosophy of surface
what's your sign
delusion A against delusion B 
a cosmic food chain of ransoming angels
I'm just trying to avoid
the hell words like cooked and eaten
cooking with Rosetta Stone
eating with zealots and hangmen
in the how wide can you talk contest
where the taboo behind the taboo
reverses us to black plague status
and the subsequent violet plague too
where clouds of flies lurk in church doorways
their buzzing can be infinitely instructive
even if it's the last thing you hear
with a flat rock for a pillow
curse my clumsy adolescence
rosy dawn into evening's umber
