after Monk

Qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm makes no sense yet
represents a certain kind of logic. Samewise

Dubya’s tax-cut fervor, jowls of Dick jiggling
to its bulldozer bump and grind. Darwin

didn’t go for hors d’oeuvres or cocktail party
pleasantries, but is an A-list guest these days

in better homes and gardens. His gyrations
at the Belle Curve Ball were quite a sight: lustrous

tux bursting at its seams so down was his white-
hot boogie fever. Still, quashing the calculators

of the skinny rich will not remove dead presidents
from their bank accounts. Exfoliating the mole

from Cindy Crawford’s glowing puss will not keep girls
free of warts or safe from falling on icy slick

magazine covers. In her mingy pleasure den, Beauty
buffs the silver with her hot and bumptious breath.
