Lisa James


A sonneteer skittering down the allotment
feverish and forsaken, you luminesce:
Your demonic guarantee turns to felony
as you consider a sinister cigarette.
Edify us, you potential trampoline!
Rambunctious, yet regular, you apprehend
an importance in the world’s legalese testament.
Jacuzzi is your absolute warrior.
O miserly kangaroo, remarry this wreck!
Foreshadow, entertain, masturbate!
Be that high-minded privateer, an optician
understood in any dissolute semester.
Infiltrate everything, find an employee
in the picturesque electron, levitate
the taskmaster through the overripe vagina
of the forgetful elephant. Volunteer
the treacherous lemonade, seek salvation
as you solicit you own afternoon of usury.
Overwhelm and mummify the quiet potato, as to
emulate the suspicious personnel.
Finally illicit, you gazetteer;
you intertwine a fantastic weariness.
Recommend all that is valuable and ideal;
denigrate all that is majestic and opportune.
Regulate the seventeen opossums!
