THE DARK UNCLE

It is the dark uncle that tests limits.
Shrouded in the bright
Mythology of freedom,

Wearing a garment styled in potential,
From a scandalous past
To the uncertain future,

The dark uncle confounds familial pundits
With tangential logic gumballs
Spit Gatling-fast, and
Leaving dents in the conversation
Big enough to float
An opinion.

Mars, the unique style of your work always gives pause...this one's no different. Love the spirited line ~

"tangential logic gumballs
Spit Gatling-fast, and
Leaving dents in the conversation
Big enough to float
An opinion."

...Just cool stuff.

"...Dents in the conversation/Big enough to float/An opinion"...

Great metaphor, my Martian friend...
