Dr. Randall K. Rogers

Silent But Deadly


bon mots

were French mints

and finally

after throwing mine out

figured out which is the

business end of a kazoo

the comb with toilet paper

is a difficult instrument

to master

spoons; metal-prong

dog brush ‘n’ small stone

armpit, cheek,

sphincter rat-a-tat-tat

sacred sounds

the music of necessity


(First published by the German literary magazine Raven Cage Magazine, and editor-in-chief Jerry Langdon)
