On the Loose

10 Apr
don't suffocate a little bit longer
but as
the ostrich orangutan osprey otter orca and octopi
be
you 

but the copy-left
to run birthday-suited
isn't
sanctioned

by those i call the shrunken

yeah hear the creatures
listen with eared eyes

they fillet you with pain
the creeps like cut-downs
correct and “critique” one-up &
pontificate

their tongue paring off
quivering flesh 
gloating
the faces
noses turned up 
act like
teachers, friends
shiv behind the back

when they finish yakking 
here’s the test:
do you feel like a floater in the bowl?

just fly 
no obsequious brown nose
bag of tricks
sniffing the jewels, bagged
calling the blade

oh but
about the money honey
to pay the cable bill
or for a caribbean deck cruise

you, minion for the green machine
or getting tight with
you
the superlative
siesta
you are not their sub no
please, don’t take their toro

burn down
the stranglehold
or dangle the howdy doody 
hamstrung 

be
you

on the loose
