GOBLIN GOBLET

 

 

 

What is this moment right here right now?

Emerging fully formed and delicately chiseled 

Lying close in prickly comfort side by side

Rubbing abrasively aggressively against

Sores and mores of the social outcast

But oh so presentable and malleable

In professional demeanor gleaming as

False stars in supernovas of the mind

Wholly soulful and mournful diatribes

Mice once toasty cozy in the beds

Of those at first drawn and then

Expelled!

 Repelled! 

Rebelled!

Labeled!

And now tabled

Like fringe players

So elemental and irradiated

In a poisonous slowly seeping swampland

 

*

 

The goblin’s goblet holds the whine

Whilst yet we dine

On memories of the dead
