spinning mids

spinning mids  (  m i d – n o v e m b e r t i d e  f a r e  )



the middle moths in squibbing squids

of riddled dots & chipping fish

as lepers leap the speckled trout

& weasels toss the whipping ships


the puddles traipse in dripping trips

of fuddled snakes & hissing fits

as spinsters spank the roundabout

& lizards lick the flipping lids


the nozzles nose in sniffing whiffs

of mottled rose & kicking pricks

as werewolves scare the thereabouts

& even weaves the knitting scripts


the sprinkles spry in singing skips

of wrinkled sighs & stinging quips

as dowsers doubt the sauerkraut

& trousers rouse the slipping grips


the noodles ooze in skidding skids

of poodle spew & swishing swish

as hurdles churn the turnabout

& fiddlerts frig the giving figs


the jumbles jam in shitting bricks

of mumbled span & sticking ribs

as winter warms the summerhouse

& autumn spawns the spinning mids
