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

ain’t born typical

50 yrs.

come+gone

on the lawn

a large black

poodle   not

mephistopheles

 

blackie to you

verst to me  (no not after a salami  that would be versht)

slim girl   13

with braces

protruding

 

standing beside the tree

now thicktrunked +veiny

not unlike me  (not so thick  just vainy)

50 yrs. have come  +gone

 

see the lawn  where i sunbathed

with a dead cousin’s bride

sexy+blonde  beverly  she was

found with her lover in a closet  (a week after the wedding ceremony)

 

which mother went to  in detroit

father escaped through the milkbox

while “babysitting”  never to return

 

brother burned with a fever  (as per usual)

but fever broke on sunday

pus-ey tonsils stopped reeking

though brother never did

 

so were our parents mere figureheads?

or CIA operatives?  why don’t u tell me

and brother  i will gladly pay you tuesday

for a hamburger today
