3 Poems by Wanda Morrow Clevenger


observe the swollen dame swarmed
by her pets given pet names;
perfected duplicity

observe how is readily rendered
an endless supply of royal jelly


this one is for
the boys
with names
dead in the water

beer bloated
cock & bull

truer lie

abandoned memory
brushed under the elegant oriental
is the truer lie; flawed disguise
