plastic baby corn

plastic baby corn

A Poem by SkinlessFrank


poached goats

are not for

petting zoos

but that has never

stopped them


and of course

there’s cream

in a little hollow

place tucked 

so very deep 

inside them

(almost like custard I’d wager)

they know

all about

the lobster

and how she


to lay her

eggs in a

tight cluster

all grape-like

on the

underside of the

algal frond


where I dream

that we too

might someday

find cool shelter

from the plastic bits

that rain down from

the tortured sky

the 3-D printers

that spit

out pink toes

and little 

baby corn

We take so many things for granted in this modern, plastic world. You remind me of the miracles that happen unnoticed, in nature. It is good to read you.

-- for me, this is about the difference between the natural and the unnatural... and also those who claim to be experts in knowing what's best for natural beings... -- perhaps the environment is getting polluted and rain doesn't taste like rain any more because too many things (and maybe even people?) around us are fake and false... -- this poem reminds me of every person who pushed me into the well of near-complete isolation but it also makes me want to fight back and restore my (now perhaps obsolete idea) of all that is 'normal', genuine and authentic... -- a very spirited piece of writing...

And just think, all this s**t will be yummy when we are all cyborgs, and we'll be stopping at the BP station when we're thirsty. Plastic peached goats are candy for trans humans sold in vending machines...

So that's how you see the world, is it, with all its and way out fiddling alterations to what is and should be as natural as the day this or that was born! What a great write, tongue in cheek brilliant near satire, i thi-i-i-nk !

I'm pretty definitely almost sure we hang out at the same places... just different dimensions.

Hmmm so intriguing this piece is Frank, you can go with it in mind to many ways...
It has science in it, biology, artificial aspects, the fact of the 3-D printer, was stunning, how crazy it is that even those pigs on your pic could be made by that nowdays...

I laughed, and felt the piece, it has an ironic brilliance to it. Thank you for your unique style yet once again my friend.

Wow! First the "sounds" the tumble of words and alliteration in this is impressive. It is highly creative and while it skims like a great bit of "brain spill" there is this thing that stocks with me.. As though there is a deeper commentary regarding the mechanized world we pass off as real and what is really real

I don't know what to say with this one. It made me smirk...flinch and wince, not really from disgust, but from the textures you described. It made me uncomfortable...but so did the imagery you created with your pen. It seemed unnatural and almost sarcastic. But I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Brilliant like always.
