Limerick #3

when i taste a rich bagel crust
whose onion topping is robust
the joy’s so severe
that i truly do fear
my tongue might spontaneously combust

is for onion
the bagel i like most
N is for not ever equating it
to toast – that would be insanity,
which is what the I is for, and if you try to
say it’s not, i’ll just come   bust down your door
and i’ll wear a mask,             and i’ll carry an axe
and a can of gas and              a bunch of matches
and you’ll be all like,          oh god, no! which in
case you didn’t get it       is what the second O
is for, but i won’t even hear your pleas,
cause i’ll be busy creaming cheese
once you get a taste of these,
you’ll Never make that
error again

the darkness

the darkness sets in
not again
i pray
but i know it’s too late

my face
hot heat beyond
i spring up
i sprint forth

pounding lungs
___screaming not
enough air not
__enough time i

slide stockings                      across linoleum

mouth agape
from panting
from horror
for now
i see it

black smoke spiraling ceilingward
onion bagel burning below

i curse the
funeral pyre
before me

both for not
when it should have
for not being
powerful enough
to take
as well
