Star-Sprinkled Conversation

Trawlers pull nets.

“X-Y questions?
Triggered brains are not uninfluenced
In your body’s index pull.”

“Why’s it no rib-tickling matter
How innately mismatched
Holy Writ heterosexuals are?
‘Amended’ by the power behind the throne;
They’ve Blessed hands for us.”

“They ‘over-my-dead-body’ of Family Values
Lays the yardstick.”

“It’s de rigueur to codify
The whole schmear – on earth.”

And all this spiel-strung
As the never-idle dock
Strikes midnight.
