Five Poems by petro c. k.

 




Sugar and Crematory

 

burnt out and about 

the citizens that have 

a good exit strategy 

 

 

Inhaling Osiris

 

Slowly shadowing butterflies 

     shower with the moss 

the other colours 

    begin to make a new ache 

at the edge of tomorrow 

    designing their landscape

ambushing the numbers

    of twilight trysts

 

 

Remember That Little Doubt 

 

Flames become a problem 

for the drought 

 

a lot of frayed nerves

trail into the night sky every day 

 

An ambulance in the distance 

of the reassembled molecular horizon

 

leaving behind the static page

that burns down to the final word

 

 

Don't Bogart the Norm

 

Clip joint defunct

without the thuggish stud

 

This gruff judge 

preens regret

 

Ugh gorgeously 

Bette Davis eyes are not done 

 

 

That Birds Dredged Idyllic Beds

 

             After you have been 

created with the most common sense 

 

and the days before the horses

            leave the country 

 

and the days before the fields 

           are the depths annexed 

 

A night gardener of your zen garden 

          says being the coy water lilies 

 

          gets the most vivid graft

of everyday phototherapy 

 





petro c. k. is a temporal being living in the primordial emerald landscape of the Pacific Northwest. His creative life has just recently included writing, with haiku and other short-form poetry already published in dozens of journals. In between bouts of existential dread and listening to music that 99% of people find too weird for them, he is working on his first collection of poetry.

Influenced by surrealism and dada techniques, the poems presented here have been created in part by using predictive text.
