A Poem by Daniel N. Flanagan


No, not literary literature
There are few hidden meanings.
For why make you work further,
You're already reading to escape
From your ordinary life, to my, object
I do not feel the need to cup breasts and fondle flamingos in order to analyze intelligence
Re-read and scrutinize me, for you will find nothing
In the recessed gardens of this straight forward, muddied mind


Beaver dam thoughts of a
Burst dam and
A man who is not
Still hiding in


The notorious shadow of his former
A man who
need not remain nameless
For he is in front of you
Throughout me, 26 letters eating me.
