“Imagination Is the Only Lucid Way to Meet Life” — Alan, Pessin

by Will Staple

The flying penis prepares a community of antlers
       a tranquil reunion of great singers
               a fraternity of the liberated spirit
       where regards are never amiss.

Interrogate the travelers that have seen
       the long history of combat
               declaring their independent mentality
inventing private property
       declaring their difference from animals.

The intact lords of desire
       despoil the qualms of the unadventurous
               abandon the false heritage of inhibition
and shamelessly sow luminous promises
       in a mirror lined room
               with a pink dresser.
