SUCK

SUCK  IT  UP  PRINCESS

There is a small wolf curled up in a blanket

in the fetal position  Makes you want to crawl

in there with him  A.G.O. Toronto  chillygrey

Fall day   The docent’s lonely  +he is chatty

Worst nightmare  Brings on a virulent vertigo

 

Everything seems to these days   Move head too

quickly  +reeling like a drunken chicken (favourite

dish at Henry’s Hunan Palace)  So where is Paradise

on Earth?  a sign asks   It is away from the chatty docent

+lonely art patrons  one gesticulating in front of: Folded

Blanket With Hanger  in delicate pinks+blues   Cellophane

lifted seductively   Provokes poetic licentiousness

 

Touch me  please!   Docent slides hand onto shoulder   Help me

find everything I have lost  won’t you?   Yesterday a neurologist

suggested an old school Tricyclic for sleep   Cures everything   Go

ahead  google it   The list is endless  ponderous     When I asked

about a nightcap  young woman doctor  United Church escapee

conservative  sensible  unfunny  said: That’s how old Hollywood

killed themselves  

 

I ignored her   There are certain things you cannot cure doctor

Like driving to her clinic   Car in front of me with Sons of Anarchy

sticker  +Damn The Father  Ram The Daughter  emblazoned on trunk

Also a comely girl  bent over    Secretary at clinic pressing a sleep apnea

machine into the hand of a sleepless man while on the phone   Called him

honey    As in: Honey strap this baby to your face  

 

Then an aside to me: It’s amazing what they can do these days!   Isn’t it

though  Get you to drive halfway to Barrie Ontario in desperation   Only to

decide that a Tegroni will do just as well: 1 oz Tromba blanco  1 oz Campari  1 oz

Sweet Vermouth  2 dashes orange or grapefruit  Chocolate bitters optional

 

Docent pushing tongue in direction of ear   Have no fear    Here is a partial

list of what Tricyclics can cure: chronic pain  migraine  irritated bowel syndrome

insomnia  chronic hiccups  pathological crying or laughing  + provide respite

from: the anxious work of maintaining your sanity  While all around you people are

preparing to vote   for Justin Trudeau
