Litter gives me a headache – 7/?/00

Litter gives me a headache like swimming makes you…
like flying fish and squirrels don’t have wings
How do they fly so high, so far, so fast, so…
Nobody knows why the other animals don’t have wings?
Then someone says, the sun can get you high
and another says, far out and no way
but in reality, the sun is higher than a woodpecker
with hydrogen and canvass
Oceans opened their mouths and eyes with whales
The ships that had sunk had risen to dance
with merry sea captains with beards of blue and…
The magic trance that put the sea in my pants
But the food of great tradesmen will nary please
those with hungry stomachs but not minds
The tears of the tradesmen turn toward the two trenches
Men of the city tower over and darken the field
