Universe For Sale

Universe for sale; hardly used.
Well recycled, with resultant complexity of life forms-
Call SETI with best offer.
Terms: nothing down, everything comes with it;
Complete universal kit for life included, free of charge;
Mix-ready amino acids and lightning generators widely available.
No refund, no return.
Use at own risk.
Find the advertisement in any book of poetry,
Home Office Earth, Milky Way Galaxy,
The Local Group, Virgo Supercluster, Inc.
Inquire there about possible future merger with the Andromeda Galaxy

Universe Holds Your Body

Universe holds your body
Just like a dollhouse doll;
Like the birdcage holds the bird,
And so, becomes a wall.

But soul's a thing from other worlds,
It flies a freer range,
And keeps its own songs inwardly;
Its feathers never change.

Unlucky

Some people's nearness stuns your life;
Their eyes are loaded like bad dice,
Their presence tells the spirit lies-
And when they leave, something has died.

Some people's luck will make yours go,
As their clutches on you grow.
Some people are a toxin, slow;
Engines seize and rods get thrown.

Some people are a curse in breath,
And their touch like living death;
All your secrets are not kept-
Wind is all that you'll have left.

Unmitigated Verse

Don't ever read these poems
They are not literary fait accomplis

I am not board certified to write poetry

My relatives are inbred
Some of them were even from Arkansas

I am not a wizard of words
Hiding behind the curtain of degree

It is only your own time you waste here

Don't ask me to mail a check for lost hours
Any mental illness that ensues
After being exposed here

Or if you break out in a mixed pox, of metaphors

Worse, if you catch this virus
And begin to write unmitigated verse
Tangled in aphorism and drowned in simile

And nobody wants to read it

Realize then, that you are committing poetry-
Which is an indefinable offense

Under the statutes of pablum.
 
Patti Masterman
