TODAY’S PLANE CRASH
A bluebird in my garden pecking
at the dead butterfly is me.
The shrill chirp eek chirp of the dead-
battery smoke detector is
the bluebird. A campaign for Congress
seducing votes is the low growl
of spotted hyenas. Sloppy-troughed pork
products are the campaign.
A flailing standup jokester peck
pecking morals is the Speaker.
The black box tape reeling sticky impact
of quickening terror is the jokester.
