Two Poems by Colin James

Colin James

The Purple Emperor

I have been hanging around
these ballerinas for too long,
shaving their legs and
plucking their veritables.
Effective evidently,
No sign of Venus in this guy.

 

 

 

The Incongruent

Laying by the lake seemingly tranquil,
a deposition of uncompromisable litter
provided the contour that was missing.
An old couch was visible in the clear spring water.
It looked like the most comfortable spot.
Nearby, a car or truck chassis, I should know.
Emphasized, the unhealthy advice of some swimmers.
They cavorted noisily, stared at their women.
I waved. They waved back.

 

Colin James has a chapbook, DREAMS OF THE REALLY ANNOYING, available from
