-ED GHAZAL #55: (SUPER SOUR ORANGE AMATEUR FAUX GHAZAL ATTEMPT)

D. Russel Micnhimer

you will not win when your windows are all washed
clear vision is filled with vanished bugs, all mashed

drones on unplanned convoluted unagendated paths
take skewed video until dead battery stalls, crashed

home runs are scarce as hens teeth on fourth of July
umpires refereeing extra innings with all calls bashed

dots with lines running between connecting naughts
tie the ratio of the unknown into wired walls crashed

diced tomorrows project yesterdays most immediacies
incorrect strategies lead to comprehensive balls hashed

only more study of parameters will lead to better forms
now though these words must suffice, Russel's cached.
