Another Aftershock

by Heikki Huotari

     Another aftershock and there's still gambling
going  on.   The  pilot   wearing   epaulets   is  as
considerate as three men of the previously spinning
lilies. Slather  me with silhouettes if you would have
me  be  the  same.  And   Abraham   says,   Take  my
sister.  Please.  And   comedy   is   timing   and   the
humorous  is  to  be  contemplated and  the  serious
brushed  off.    Go  backwards  and  divide  the  light.
What God has put asunder let no man unite.

In a past century Heikki Huotari attended a one-room school and spent summers on a forest-fire lookout tower, is now a retired math professor, and has published three chapbooks, one of which won the Gambling The Aisle prize, and one collection, Fractal Idyll (A..P Press). Another collection is in press.
