POEM: Tangles

bunch your words up and throw ’em in a satchel

and see if they mean fuck all after you’ve ridden across the plains

pull the letters out one-by-one to see if words gel

or whether what spills out is a wicked mass of tangled confusion

tangles blurted like a Tourette’s sufferer with a machine gun stutter
