Dreamy Tonsils

isolated, aimless,         layed near alien smilers
normal     amends made   noises sold
my roadless toenails tread dream salt
antlers leary, lids onsite

anytime     lends old   rails to lone stares
anymore     loads stale tendrils    on disaster tides

i mislearn elation as sated moans
i misread sanity as a modest tramline
a sermon in entrails and snarled talons
mistold in idle, silent yodels

— a ‘beau présent’ (beautiful in-law) – created using only the letters found in a person’s name. for this one, i used a name that is an anagram of the poem’s title.
