Piranha and Bungle by Joseph Dorazio

Piranha

 

A partial list

of pariahs

surely includes

piranhas—

outcasts

like Adam

& Eve. The

latter bobs

for apples,

the former for

bodies & bones.

 

for Charlotte

 

 

Bungle

 

Intent on making a fly,

God began to multi-task

and set to work on man.

 

But things went awry. Man

was supposed to get

the wings

 

and the compound eyes, but

got instead intellect—

the proboscis he inserts

 

in regurgitated matter,

while fly vomits bliss

and dies within an hour.
