NaPoWriMo 2013 # 25...




nocturnal framing of the music

in a small family pear tree 
take out was in
white styrofoam
with extra napkins
eat slow
says the window
think in the poem
before you harmonize
with a song
that can say
sing me
make a whole world happy

Chances are, editing, is a cop out.
Having a good grammarian around,
though, is a key to being a witness stand oracle.
Choice questions and prime answers 
are the cuts that lead to good bleeding.

Reuben was served to the roadies
forgive them
for eating
the manager
left out
in the cold
he ended up
so juicy
so tender
so sauced
he never felt
anything
but happy
