"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

ANTS

ROLL  IN  THE  GRASS    GET  ANTS  IN  YOUR  PANTS

Said Aunt May Gasparini   She took us to the Nutcracker

with her daughter René   & let us choose anything from

the Eaton’s catalogue    I chose a beatnik doll with khol

smudged eyes & black tights   My brother requested Pebbles

He later developed an unnatural affection  for Frank Zappa

 

May died young   just after she & Remo divorced    Our families

lost touch   But the back-split ranch house  filled with fieldstone

& terrazzo   remains a  psychic-shrine to 60’s cool     Hip parent’s   

laughter   cigarette smoke    Now somewhere back in  the Gatinea   

May of the sly smile   & red hair
