Clever Dear (Poem)

Hyper | Johnny Marcondes

Drunken frutiflies dance in my wineglass

All through the night

I hear their souls pass

Like seconds to the right

Clockwise and clocwork

They pass down my gullet

Like dregs that rise

Downwards a bit like regret

But refreshments so crisp

Like grapes full of captured sun

I begin to lisp

All about the already run

Put black horses through their paces

Hourglasses with sand

Grain that traces

Glimmers of land

In the oasis


Abuzz are the contented

Till they go

To lands enchanted

To sing forever

Sing so clear

That they are silent

Clever dear


Clever dear
