Potion Magazine - Poetry + Fiction

Snoopy and the Red Baron

Tilted, over northern France, a large

porcelain letter O lie on it’s side, rolling.

Tubes spread apart, a woman’s thighs
exist to nurture and advance all art

             was death a sectioned-out grapefruit
             all pith and no juice, a primary advocate
             huddled over green bitterness

Conduits rose and fell crossing the circus
some reports indicate an overturned toilet

disciplines encourage wriggling participation

So he smoothed out his moustache
and entered the slick plastic vagina
