In calm repose, as mine do
In my mother’s house.

Seeking worms in frozen ground
At the cusp of spring.

Thrashing me from side to side
But moving nothing.

And I dissolve into it,
A midnight swimmer.

Gamboling from trunk to branch,
Where they score the try.

The wind howling through his mind,
He saw snow falling.

Against the old citadel
Like a horse’s cock.

A belch like a gurgling sink
And still he wants more.

A dog barks obsessively
Content with nothing.

San Francisco bum
Sitting with dog and blanket,
Reading Vonnegut.
