I am sins of decades

despite duck and cover

and breathing mushrooms

of imagination

draft age wars

jungling heart attacks

in the genes

and pollution in

bottled water

fires in the belly

stringing the lobes

in spider webs

aromas and penstrokes

a mess of bedtimes

numbering thousands

no need to pull a Roman

when Broca has forgotten
