I thought I was the king of the garbage cans
But now I know I am a fabulous invention!
The fly strip over the kitchen sink drain
Is a choral symphony with a nutty fugue in the last movement!
I want to turn on the faucet and see a silent movie with Buster Keaton,
A new one! & I want a picture of a monkey on the label
Of my soda bottle! I want more blue everything,
Please! I used to be a strawberry,
But then I got hip to the whole strawberry thing
& now I am full of moons and half moons
Right up to the eyeballs. My light is reflected light
But it is still sweet as butterscotch,
& the witches on roller skates slow down
To say nice things about my lizard tattoo.
