22. H
A Homo in a hetero-homo-sapaen universe holding on to a hierarchy of
hardened holstered heroes belonging to hieronymous hallucinations
helping heave his hurried heritage from Hermes to Hermaphrodites wanting
to herald the hemisphere held by Hercules only to heighten that heinous
haemorrhaging causing his hibernation and hieroglyphic history in
Holland or Hollywood with his holster hip hugging hero who paid homage
to that holocaust of honest honour hooked to hope and horoscope in a
horrible horrid horse huck-a back, humping hundred hunting human
humorous hurdles hypnotically and hysterically hemming his way to his
hedonistic hedged home in heathen helmeted heat, Hear thy heart and head
you haunting homo in hetero-homosapaen harmony.

The young Nuns on the old dunes
of the beach with wistful
windfull breeze blowing hair up, down, across the lovely features of the
adolescent devout to be
in black, billowy, bloomered, bland costume
non form, non descript, blank ankle, white sneaker
white sand, white wave, white grey, white blue,
blue white sky, empty........
