Madame Duke Perk or Madame Duke
Porker adored a dork dreamer; a marauded
meek peer puked up pre-med mud.
Karaoke makeup murdered me.
Peek ream Dukedom, karaoke mode,
a rammed Duke poker, a darker puked
memo, earmarked a dope armed parka
made demure. A mapmaker demo area
marked “roam” deemed pure or more.
Eeriest joint litmus
Ebb jitteriest emulsion,
ebb temerities jilt onus,
lion’s jut; entireties, entreaties,
intuit tourist insults
in sunlit joints.
Ebb senilities jet tumor,
ebb seemliest junior tit,
loin joust; joineries, seniorities,
limit stimuli menus
to teensier omens.
One mean deal
My smile may use a leaden noose.
Yoke omens, noisy oily moose, emailed
loose-eye yeomen like Eskimo limos. Lone keen
melee mouse eased my lime leak yodel.
