For Stuart Ross.

Skies underfoot
bunions overhead.

Your shortcomings
are a case of “Grand Theft Auto Three.”
Your logic

breaks bread with Stuart Ross
dressed as Bjork for Halloween.

Cabby, forty-six years-of-age, wears a pair
of recycled underwear from the hinterlands
over his face ten months of the year,
causes controversy when he boards his phobic cat
in a feline hotel conveniently located
directly across the street from a pet cemetery.

Life is an expired dick
That gets eaten.
