This last week in Mad Swirl's Poetry Forum... we felt for him who forgot his hymns; we played freeze tag with the bugs in our head; we blew noses, then others, to raise the dead; we took a look at a misread book; we conjured a crater from caldera into swimming pool; we unmasked mighty "us" to show a bunch of fools; we sold gum for a tenner, tryin' to make life better. We sell what we must to keep what we can; write it all out in longhand. ~ MH Clay

Moonlighting by Sissy Buckles

For seasonal minimum wage
I stand all night after my
daytime office gig
growing corns on my feet
building up that nest egg and
desperate anyway
for anything to keep busy
so I don’t have to broo…
