sarah died on october 10th.
and john was a como
in the continental navy. harold
pinter won the nobel prize
and richard was aged twenty-two
months. and an osage orange
(with its 200 seeds) nearly fell on your head (like
a brain like a bomb horse high
bull strong hog tight).
and we scootched over a bit
to avoid the fatwa against soccer.
elen was the consort of james and persifer
was the second son. and
and two golden retrievers
slalomed headstones and two homeless men
crashed on benches and leaves
made a carpet of tattoos on the grass
and you made a yum sound for bacon.
charles willson peale contributed
as an artist to the history of his country
and turpin kilby knows his redeemer liveth
and the myrtle creeps and skin-heads
riot in toledo. first martha then
constance then virginia then samuel and the o.j.
had calcium added and pulp removed. and sun
fell in pieces as it rose and someone found beethoven
in a seminary. and a pigeon ate pizza and a hedgeapple
might have fallen on sarahís head,
1771. and so he giveth his beloved sleep
and this autumn doubtfulness, sunday
october 16th, this year of someonesís lord, 2005,
