Name a place. Bring me a cup of your finest tea.

Maybe you might like it if you tried it

No Mom! You wouldn’t say the same

about another man’s jam

Lick it, love it, post it on instagram

but do not wave it in my face

with an explanatory diagram

what connotations

do contraceptives carry

what metaphors do they produce

or do they just abort

a creepy kind of consort

in any form or decay

tricky questions

are pondered by tricky jesters

the kind that sleep on muddy graves

and sink inch by inch

into a deep recess and

a well deserved rest

for all of us mages

that stick our magic wands

in the darkest of places

and hope to find a way

outta our joyless mazes.

But even if you were

free and flightless

as the next Ostrich

you would still

carry around an

egg the size of a man’s

brain weighed

on a metric scale.
