Were rain to fall in a Postmodern way
I suppose the pitchfork between Mother and Father America
should be the show
twisted, for all that, in the goatee planets
toes tucked under art’s carpet
with the Old World smokers,
awaiting translators with the appropriate hat
to drum up a cordial place
to set the feathered caps of preconceived seeing,
in preparation for a swim.
Dancers spin to winter globes–
Cocoa steams the notes.
Because sometimes I just want to be silly:
Twittered about Trolls
in that fine system of tubes–
Al Gore had a laugh.
