Complex Wind

by Page McConnell
In the middle of last week
The man began to speak
Words, a flurry of expressive
Extensive release

Now the complex wind prevails
And billowing our sails
Hell is not where you’d expect it
Accepting for free

Windmills, alpaca
Thermal extractor
Who’s keeping track of
Matter of factor?

He started to speak in the middle of last week
Talking for days, lending voice to the breeze

Time to take another cause
Or time to take a pause
Breathe, then float down to the bottom
You’ve got ’em this time

Michelangelo and on
With tales of Genghis Khan
Now who claims a victory?
But your gains you’ll never see

Windmills, alpaca
Thermal extractor
Who’s keeping track of
Matter of factor?

He started to speak in the middle of last week
Talking for days, lending voice to the breeze
