Poetry: Paradise –Jeff Savlon


The urine stench in the flower garden

The leech sucking on the bare supermodel thigh

The onion floating in the cocoa puffs bowl

The flower growing out of the urinal cake

The leach pond parted by sexy gesticulations

The cereal prize hidden under the onion peel

The expected, the unexpected, the unlikely, the likely

The mixed and the mixer

 –––––––––––––All congregate in bad luck water

 –––––––––––––––––––––––To spiral down rash-marked porcelain

 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Into some repulsive paradise.
