Are you having trouble starting the engine?
Here, this feijoa might help. After all,
itís spring and the month rhymes
with dismember. Donít mind if I do.
Lately my temperís as rickety as silk.
Itís a yard of stale cologne.
The moon, an antique dirigible.
Amyís been working on a new installation
called ďAnatomy: A Noh Play.Ē
Everybodyís mutilated, in one way or another.
Am I afraid of the mechanics of growth?
Windfall feijoas all over the footpath?
I donít know where Iím going
with this or any other vehicle.
Thatís the kicker, kid. You never do.
