It Should Not Give Me Much Concern

by Matthew Kenneth Kosak

 

It should not give me much concern
To watch the time drain away
Like so much indifference
Would I not expect it any other way?
 
A usurer cannot own such rights!

A usurer cannot own such nights!
 
It melts and covers over my body, the great green screen like green chlorophyll taken from a million leaves of trees that dot the hill.
 
And I lean forward into the space, 

A password prods at my elbow
like an eager bichon poodle pup.

Where should we go today?
Where should we go tomorrow?

The Offshore Candidate

by Matthew Kenneth Kosak

 

“Can you see I’m smiling? Of course’ I’m smiling

That’s because this hour my stocks increased!

And I showed up and told lies, that all were liking!

I’m smiling, yes, though my character’s deceased.

 

Can you see I’m smiling? Why of course’ I’m smiling

Cause’ I look good on TV, I can talk, I can debate

And my opponent envies my offshore accounting

That’s because it’s ‘legitimate rape.’

 

My assets are protected. No! Not the one’s here!

I wouldn’t invest it in this company

I mean Country; where the entitled ones steer

I won’t invest here, I prefer theocracy.

 

I say, forget the forty seven percent!

But yes, Oh yes! I’m qualified for president.”

Words Are Like Caves

by Matthew Kenneth Kosak

This is an excerpt from  “Caves, Elements, DNA, and things about Novels”

 

‘Many people don’t know that  you can climb into words

and knock around inside them with a rock hammer.

They’re like  caves. And you might find things written on their walls,

ancient ideas, or maybe even a vein of gold.

Or perhaps a rough piece of glass which is not really glass,

but is natural diamond.’
