1. After the Math

debacle innuendo
slow to finesse a faded assembly 

where delusions encouraged 

     bleached mathematics
     finite asphalt consonants 
     a slow-motion rotor tread 

               motorcade infusion therapy
               vaunted a thoughtful mirage:
               remedial seating in salons 

          the umber-toned currency 
          taking slow motion revenge 
          meant stereo legends blow 

a seatbelt match before elation 

     lacing the miracle 
                                  to slow-motion 

currency stocking subterfuge radials

                                  darkened the invective 


2. Borderline Ingrates

fossil enchiladas

greet the grand splenectomy
venting scene
     carting              flume scene
     drama   stitches

          the cradle tumescent
          as its carriers launch

                      the breeding pulpit

             at any river chart currently tiding

along the scored line
streaming mouthwash handily

         lurch belated rumination lunch

                       (food for ought)

                              feeding the hand to bite them
