A Good Street

there in the car
i see it hidden behind
the mask of normalcy
in these sub-divisions,
cul-de-sacs, and backyard
there is a seed of deviance
that continues to thrive
there behind
the smiles, the girl-scout cookies,
and little league baseball
where all the bases are covered
with private rooms, special outfits,
video cameras, and
on the backs of knees, necks, and
underbelly of breasts until
the moans grow higher. grow like
big fat juicy tomatoes in the
backyard gardens and my Lord don't
they taste perfect.

  1. Ha! Love the last lines. Keen observation and curiosity. You have a way of building energy, jabbing it here and there and shooting the spear clean through at the end.
