Dirty Mouth

Wave a gentle plume
against the hair trigger
and watch the temperature rise.
Were it a fusion reactor
a micrometer
nudge of plutonium makes it
hot green radioactive.

Its mouth is a rancid waterbed
crackhouse with overflowing toilets
mass grave of delusion
ceramic jar of flies.

through intemperate haze
not dazzling as a chrome hood ornament

Off-handedly one might address
the malaise of the current administration.
Sipping on Sutter Home
Pinot noir
noble fifth estate guarding
the principles of democracy my ass.
until sideways blurry gauze vaseline cellophane

You dirty mouth
cowboy tongue
riding around in a lexus
no peace no justice
Free Tibet
dusty stickers
