The thing in the sky
All of a sudden is a cartoon bird
Then it’s an actual hungry shark

But it’s a puddle of draino now
I’m sad I said sad to see polygons
Again the lizard ten years old

Then chemo
Is a seahorse
Then it’s a chicken

It’s not a chicken per se
I’m nervous and driving
Afraid of death depth stillness it looks like

A chicken but then suddenly
It’s pregnant something else still born
It’s the ocean but not drowned

A seahorse hot
A shark it’s not a
Chicken it’s a rotten cartoon it’s

Six o’clock somewhere I suppose a carcass now a newt
It’s 6 ounces of what sky is what
I wanted to say am saying have said.

placed in the child
hovers above and the marvel
stove its in the grandmother
sits some breading pathway
then the pages of the hot black stove
reading the pages of the house

she the child house
puts some bread and the old grandmother child
but secretly and herself above stove
and talking and says the mad on the house marvel
feels child draws a rigid house pathway
feels child grandmother

but secretly and the mad on the almanac grandmother
with the almanac house
with the kitchen crayons the child draws a rigid pathway
time to be says the grandmother child
but only know what her marvel
busies her stove

sits some breading the shivers half open above stove
and the house grandmother
were both foretold grandmother marvel
sits in a man with failing child draws another house
tidying pathways then the stove child
reading up the stove pathway

the grandmother pathway
but secretly and herself above the almanac stove
with crayons like tea now child
but only know what I know what i know grandmother
like mad on that herself about the child draws a rigid house
tidying pathway then with crayons the house marvel

in the house marvels
were both foretold grandmother sings to place pathways
in the flower bed the shivers half open above house
the shivers above the child stove
is watching pathway then the house grandmother
she the rain must dance little marvel stove child

between houses the hot black stove
little marvel stone breading the pathway
grandmother rain proudly cuts child
