April 22, 2011 – homunculus me

tiny broken parts of myself
filter through chameleon blender
generating giant wedges
of splintered humanity
sputtering spasmodically
in time with tightly
wound clock.

edges ruffled stiff from worry
enhanced by conspicuous clamor
manifesting savage villains
in twisted exhibition
trespassing manipulation
of gut kept hushed in
lean trust.

eyelids flutter closed to protect
fortress from infiltration brigade
devastating native flora
and cornered protozoa
zigzagging deliberately
in case one misses
sure mark.

errant noises fill space around
safety zone supplementing risky
antithesis hidden inside
more formal mechanisms
dividing authenticity
among all who come
near whole.
