Before the Scarecrow Walks

from by Dummy Jar




Weakened by the comfort
got the bread without the butter
when you're adding up numbers
terminating yet another step.

Reappearing reoccurring agonizing agitation
catalyzing quiescent
recrudescing laceration.

Cycle ceases circles and begins to fold upon itself
before the scarecrow walks he cries
for more than post he's always felt.
Around and round and up and down
all possibility shot down
with head in clouds and feet on ground.

Its natural nature nurtures no thing
to renounce passion
trust lust the try to hush.
