30 Years Without Slumbering





30 Years Without Slumbering






A town lay awake,

its lanes and avenues hugging the banks

of the Arkansa River




the joker was wild,

and no one knew these streets 

like he did




tying up loose ends,

one with the other




choking out all his arrogance




singing hymns with one face




the other face’s malevolence

reflected in ten mirrors




spilling secrets confessed

out of cereal boxes




A wolf in sheep’s clothing

leaving his flock to drown




a wild card,

seemingly powerful, 

but useless




finally contained,

a psychopath with emotions,

but then again-

maybe not.
