MS. POPELICK’S HOME FOR PECULIAR ANIMALS

do you remember that fateful day when
ms. popelick’s pet creamery got closed down?
she said, “screw your amen!” and scratched her head
capped as it was by a poppylike crown

you see, what she made tasted so damn good
her processed swirls of sweet death in cones
soused and canned sainthood, and of course
the chef’s specialty, fudge wishbones

she’d grind them up while strumming flesh smoothie
those soft-serve critters gave the church a bad name
animal rights stoogies sued and poked fingers
to stop the cruelty, debauchery, and shame

but she flicked the bean, forced the beasts to sign away
their status as fauna with pawprint, hoof and fluke
veggies for the tray, to dice, salt and roast
then she changed the signboard, and no one could rebuke

  1. I actually was in the midst of reading your latest post in which there was a highlighted phrase that lead me here – absolutely sheer enjoyment! You and Tetiana weave these surrealistic waves of beautiful words that roll together onto the proverbial sand as a wave of vivid description that leads the us, the reader, down a dotted beach filled with a treasure trove of various seashells that we scramble about on trying to grab up each stunningly unique one least the next wave reclaim them into the deep – never to be seen again!

    In short your collaboration has woven together a tale of sheer genius! Titillating to read leaving us begging for more, more, more! Thank you so very much for sharing this! Lady Anne ^^Ö^^

  2. “Incredible writers ooze that classy, quietly captivating demeanour – in writing – compelling you to sit patiently, and wait for the next release…. I love reading this particular offering because it is so expertly smooth (Souse!!!!!) and every time I read it another door of missed information is realized ….. Absolutely beautiful, in the literary… Do it, Unbolt.”
