The Pipeline – a sonnet by R L Raymond

Posted in R L Raymond with tags on February 27, 2011 by Scot

he ground the filthy ephemera
into powder fine enough for snorting
the pitted heel of his oxblood oxfords
a pestle to the sidewalk’s rough mortar

flyers for resurrected punk rock bands
trash tabloids with inscrutable headlines
translucent fast-food wrappers discarded
garbage bits blown into piles at his feet

it was a dry day
it would carry far
it would reach them all

the stoners
the ignorant
the obese
