illiterate alliteration

incantation
anticipation
deviated expectation

following melodic strokes
painted frantic
as we burn
in the ashtray
of lazy revolution

hesitation
complication
unexpected altercation

we are confined
by signs that bind
in and out of time
to perpetually remind
of how hearts and minds
are slowly redefined

exclamation
experimentation
divine interpretation

sitting on cold bottomed dreams
mapped along maleficent mornings
i’ve already forgotten the line

dictation
annotation
eccentric equation

with repetition
and no recognition
we magnify the malice
of metal in the morning
duped and derived from
a sassy spell

alteration
configuration
mutated manifestation

no poetry today
just six bells
and a renovated dawn
to signal the salvage
of sapient souls
sold once more

dilatation
hallucination
faceless fragmentation

awaken to a rusty metaphor
and a silk mentor
who sells small books

temptation
personification
raucous reclamation

summer set the tone to autumn
with drugs
and a circle of
dreams within dreams

imitation
invitation
incomplete assassination

the cycle has yet to be broken
and these rhymes
are made up  in real time
so many odd little tokens

calculation
cessation
capitulation

liberals got no guns
and conservatives got no love
we need more
love and guns
guns and love
what a perfect world
and now
waiting for
another forgotten moment
sometimes i can’t spell
or quell
this mundane routine

it’s all
illiterate alliteration
and the flood is coming
