Settings of three slightly surreal poems by David C. Hansen.

Saint Christian Bernard hormoned and got mumbo lips last month
Carla Suntanya transexed and owns a record company…

Ice Swan
I caught you in the never tell a lie dream.
Pinched gently to brim the glass.
Fingered the mouth at a yawn’s peak spoiling the moment…

A Young Duffer’s Duet With the Furnace Gong
Six hours later were six inches snow on Delmer.
Dunce Katya’s pierce taps dungeon on Olsen’s dull dulcimer…
