~Thirteenth Index

I) The Fattening;
feasting on after
party delights;
Funeral engorgement.
Pouring cholesterol based
testosterone on the
internet unknowns.
II) The Snowday;
Tobogganing on bikes'
hills, and ducks;
after the path, no
more ducks.
Stomach tickling
confused thighs and
their snowdances.
III) The Dog;
eating holes,
starving with grass
scarred dishes.
Scarfed mustaches,
and noodle glasses;
if only for
packaged sound effects.
IV) The Splash;
a one person wave.
Boob signing induced
comas, using pencils
and cubism homework.
You have a baby inside you.
V) Cell Regeneration;

The sonics in this poem are excellent.  Feels very imagist, and the surrreal qualities still move toward a theme (at least as I read it).

I only wonder if lines 5-7 work against the overall tone.  "Pouring cholesterol based/testosterone on the/internet unknowns" seems contemporary and self-conscious, sounds a bit like the poetic voice intruding on the poem.

Good schtuff, thanks,
