Sonnet: Paragon Park, Park Your Paragon

by John Kendall Hawkins


It's a roller coaster ride and I feel

full of weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Woke from a crazy quilt dream full of zeal

free of meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

No more karma rides, Janus-faced self-Taos,

or guilt trips through jungle rushes deep inside;

desire's kaput (kick of the foot), my cows

have come home from moonlit pastures with pride.

Paragon Park before my balls had dropped

provided hours of negative G fun,

high speed falling through inner space, chop-chopped

toward obliteration -- and I'm done!

I don't know whatever became of me

but thank god almighty at last I'm free.
