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

they shoot behemoths don’t they?

(venezuelan poodle moth)

 

the groundhogs chased youngest up the

back stairs  snarling   their progeny people

the house now   the house that housed the:

 

motherfather

threebros onesister

tendogs  twentyfourpups

onerabbit  onesquirrel  fish

 

oneturtle eaten by poodle

 

backsplit ravinehouse  sunsets in living room  reds

boy who killed his mother returns  prodigal-jerry  in a

bathrobe  now his orange javelin spewing dust of

the dead:

 

father

brother

grandfather/grandmother

all dogs

 

so far

 

the still alive  inhabit new houses  while the earlier house

decomposes in their basements   in their dreams   and

new moths eat the new clothes  and the family pretends

their moth problem has been solved
