The Prophet in Real Life


the irritant unfolds 
a gathered spleen frenetic 
     as its last assembling 

a remnant foretold
as yet another blistered rerun
    tips its fingers
               against a dead heat

wrecking thunder beckons
meat bulletins where branches batter
     threaten shredding 
                                    to a helmet sky

flash against the rhythm pulse 
again convulsive icons breakdance 
porcelain landings on cement
no vagaries leave unturning 
constant as careening avenues
                   to front
           the lathered lenders
an oral precept hand-delivered 
to oracle merchants on holiday
