Double-take

Caterpillars hang on branches in a breach of profit.
Catfish and brim float on water, the lake’s prophets.

First to pre-board, a man in a wheelchair avoids a hassle.
A man dashes out of the bathroom and forgets his asshole.

A rotisserie of fire ants dig dark carnal knowledge.
Lava laminates green hills in carnival knowledge.

Exploding pomegranates splatter the earth with a red present.
Corn crops, spears of brown fields provide ethanol a presence.

A water blister of brass and silk opens a time lapse.
Shredded tires along a flooded street do backward laps.

A chocolate bar tattooed on his chest comes á la carte.
A computer is the last place to look for the Holocaust.
