While Moonlight Trims a Fingernail
A violin string falls in love with a chin.
A tollbooth wins the lottery. Lightning
rips open night sky sutures. A thimble
eyeballs Excalibur. A porcupine gives
birth to a peach. Two remedies opt for
second opinions. A caboose rescues a
leading lady. A doorknob reads a palm.
A paper clip pictures a sequoia. An alibi
eavesdrops on a song and dance. A yawn
is surrounded by mouse holes. Nightcaps
picket the dawn. Confetti clogs an artery.
A lovesick bowl of cornflakes remembers
a scarecrow. An eyelash tickles a keyhole.
A mustache bathes in eggnog. A French
horn kisses a cloud. A marigold replaces
a Magnum. A volcano sleeps one off and
dreams it is a jar of marmalade. A slice of
cold pie shivers in its blanket of meringue.
Sandpaper reconsiders the hand it is dealt.
A pigsty cures a side of bacon. A mothball
and a timepiece find happiness in a retiree’s
suit coat pocket. A lone wolf contemplates
midnight while moonlight trims a fingernail.
