Stevia Water

Tilde blanching,
asparagus swirling in a boiling pot
non-practicing vegetarian eating bacon
a Carroll fantasy, tapping at colorful doors
deep wells of rum and pillows of crumb cakes
swizzled delicate icings over landscapes
combed with sprinkles, hardly
forming an edifice of illumination
pretentious prophets propounding positions
while lizards fumble over dusty rocks
looking for a lost river, tongues darting
tasting the air for caramels,
the rarefaction of distended listeners
capable only of criticism, howling,
menacing, bleeding scratches
from the vinyl memories never made
and needles skimping skeins of licorice
dripping over gardens, the spray of stevia water.
