Poem: “Interracial Erotica: Dichotomous Jones 2”

(Author’s Note: Dichotomous Jones is the unnamed protagonist of the poem “Flag Burning”, found in my collection The Rubberband Man and Other Stories)

Interracial Erotica

Whistles form a train station on the horizon, but he cannot stop the March of Dimes.

“Terrible, terrible,” the voices coagulate. “Terrible joy in terrible need.”

Kings clash in the bread of night, servicing cloudy milk beside the container. Jumping with displeasure, he feels his way around the neck. Certainty takes him that he knows the sound of prickly coronations. All is burgundy.

When the shadows drag happenstance into the Buick, one door closes to reveal creation.

THERE IS ANOTHER!

He falls to his paw prints, deep in the gloom.

Whistles form a train station on the horizon, but he cannot stop the March of Dimes.

And on the ocean’s sharpest edge, his eyes throw off their chains forever.
