Two-Minute Poetry Break – stuck by Avram Ohm

stuck

heads bowed like so many
cattle funneled to the
slaughterhouse,
we stand firmly and
securely fastened,
admiring the depths
of the muddy ditch,
blind to the pastoral plains
gracing either side

straining towards
an imaginary destiny
and inevitable fall
of a final miserable curtain that only
cruel fate and laughing minstrel Gods
could have bequeathed,
it finally hits us

Ah, to hell with it
It’s time for a drink

Two-Minute Poetry Break – So that’s it? by Avram Ohm

So That’s It?

Rote familiarity
The antidote to passion
toothpaste squeezed
from the middle of the tube

Socks that don’t match
Talking without listening
Each season a decade

Iron bars forged on the anvil
of happily ever after
surround the gilded cage
designed by Vatican architects

Expectation, judgment
everything is the same
nothing is different
no one is special

Who are you to think that?
What gives you the right?

Boredom spelled
with a capital you and me

We all die
So that’s it?

Well, hot damn
Why didn’t I think of that?
