I wanted to win the cookie match

so I planned on making a batch

of cookies with marbled chocolate patch

shaped like white monoliths holding up a brown thatch

and I whipped up sweet dough in a snatch

but couldn’t open the rusty catch

on the ancient oven’s hatch

MindLoveMisery’s Saturday mix batch catch hatch patch thatch match


a clique of unctuous lovebirds titter

preening through layers of paint

fighting to keep tired facades

of meaningful bonding steeped

in nose nips and bee knocked lips

begin to get ahead of themselves

screeching ‘yeet‘ throwing

towels and tantrums

keeping appearances afloat

a cleopatra turquoise eye tattoo

a current favourite in

apocryphal verisimilitude

A downpour of nonsense

I hold an eight-coloured umbrella upside-down, letting bulbous water pockets splotch into the bowl but only from yellow segments – like lime-wedges you plug beer with, but yellower – on which CurvaceousCanary perches superciliously, also a little precariously, loses its lahdidah ballet-dancer poise and falls ungracefully into Soup D’Monsoon Petrichor, just when CovidCat gets guts and strings the guitar, no less superciliously, for CurvilicousCanary who’s now crooning a cabernet, making half-moon eyes at CovidCat, asking for his references, “What’s your poison?”, to which he answers, whiskers whirling, “I’m Murakami’s.”
