Madness For Breakfast

By Rory A.A. Hinton


Time of the month.
Crime of the century
Twenty one, two, three
Counted the seconds out
Within the waiting place.

Pictured frames spoke
Ten thousand words
Certified just for you.
You, Doctor Martin,
Ate madness for breakfast.

Hovered hen-like,
Zen liked this chick
Chirping ruse her.
Crazy Cock a doodled
On a prescription pad.

Protected professionally,
Consented confessionally
Compacted universe, where
Every pretty thing
Broken was spoken.
Nothing over looked    
Like mid-wife strife.
Life teaches care
Full of the broken eggs,
And the deepest words.

His less was always more
The most attempted to offer.

Martin Theodore Orne: 1927 - 2000.
