If a picture paints a thousand words
I could post one now and be done.

But I promised I wouldn’t.
Though it’s still on my camera roll.

I do confess to sending it
to one of my muses
That’s all, I swear.
Why would I lie?

Her response:

“Holy Toledo!!!!”


a quatrain
of exclamatory punctuation

My high school English teacher
once said
those who use
an excess of Exclamation Points
generally have little to say.


and SHE only saw the picture.

All senses are required
to fully
the putrefaction

Picture if you dare

A chest freezer
An electrical outlet
Umbilical cord connecting the two

Sever the lifeline.

Add two months


keeping it closed
doesn’t help.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For you are like whitewashed tombs,
which on the outside look beautiful,
but inside they are full of the bones of the dead
and of all kinds of filth.

Jesus knew what he was talking about.
