Default Prince of Juniper and Tenth - JoeMatt

janky ruled under the bridges
by the oil can fires at twighlight
in corrugated castles, singing
atonal hymns of saints imagined

a saw-toothed grin, a wool-crowned glance

a chance to spew some cross-eyed wisdom
delivering end-time proclamations
from his broken concrete throne

janky graced the gutters, stumbling

mumbling with his begging chalice
clutching brown bagged forty-ouncers
marching sideways through the suits

now shadows fall on janky’s corner

beside the empty piss-stained mattress
a schizophrenic mongrel mimics
his muttered rhymes and cracked-lip smile

beneath his shroud of polyvinyl

fluorescent green on stainless steel
an empty prayer recited swiftly
for the prince of juniper and tenth
