sense, the way a dog
is a machine for barking.
And just so, there are side effects:
the mess that takes you by surprise
(the wondering when did that happen?)
the licking your face
when you’re trying to sleep
and unless you take precautions
always more poems.
come along come come come
that is fine
no no need for that and no time
for the need to account for the world is a pressing need
for instance that squirrel
must be put into her proper slot SHARP! SHARP! SHARP! SHARP!
the wellfed mastiff was
since the rain stopped
well well we will see about that
come along shall we here is a street for us to walk along I’ll show you the way
I’m sure there’s something
let us keep on
there that’s fine
