Anachronistic anarchist

The anachronistic anarchist
uses post-it notes
to remind herself
of her dinner date
with the sun.
But the sun has a cold
and sends a rain check
that bounces
into a
reverse
black
hole.

The anachronistic anarchist
sends two gmails a day
to her former self
but they are flagged as spam
and the user is blocked
from
the
future.

The anachronistic anarchist
wants to start a revolution
to protest the dictatorship
of synchronicity.
Her identical twin
outlaws coincidence
and abolishes punctuality.

So the anachronistic anarchist
shows up late
to her date
with the sun,
who is covered in post-it notes
about the revolution
against
the
anarchy
of
space.

--Clockwise Cat publisher and editor Alison Ross dabbles delicately in verse. She also spews incessant invective. You may peruse her precious poesie and rowdy rants online. Alison's personal utopia would be to dwell inside a painting executed by Joan Miro, wherein Frida Kahlo, Jean-Michael Basquiat, Arthur Rimbaud, Isabel Allende, Jorge Luis Borges, Dr. Seuss, David Lynch and The Cure all converge in felicitous, Zen-surrealistic bliss.

Great poem. I need to submit to Clockwise Cat, now.
