Goodbye forever to skin irritation

My belly has four full
walls of TV, all these
free chemical gifts.

To avoid syndication I read
my trustful friends’ poems from
little books.  They

like to create new
crab dishes and dance and
sing about crabs.


An abandonment I had
depended on recently
became uninteresting.
I can’t find my bread

book and have no
desire to blame him.  To do

him justice, we did share
a Coke and a Bounty
Bar; the sugar
just ran out.
