Three Poems- Christopher Mulrooney

story

on one day I even mentioned

Witch I said broom of hell

call to coruscation making

thirst for imprecation slaking

Witch I said or hag or demon

Devil take thee said the witch

 

from the top

all the police patrols counted off

in their bell jar hats

and took the Black Maria to the beach

for a cookout of jellyfish and squid

 

 

scoop

the system was a good one

mountain feud

generations along the way

of ridgerunners

 

like the breeder of horses

fine animals down several lines

he won each time

and sold the shit to farmers

 

Christopher Mulrooney has written poems in Burning Houses, Turbulence, The Delinquent, Paragon, Rhythm, West Wind Review, and holland 1945.
