Orange Orphanage

Oz the Great & Terrible sleeps soundly in the drainpipes

Snoring through every new toothache

Each illicit subscription to bare-knuckle torture tactics

Every ribald pang of self-regression

Secure in time’s frigid chickenbone deathgrip

As he ransacks idealism’s rank poorhouse

& remakes its bordellos to suit the finest of tastes

Having been given the blessing to act as pimp of his insecurities

& left to rot with any memory he may have

preserved,

predicted

or asked for
