little lost causes

Monday, July 21, 2008


it's amazing to think of things like
colorful salmon skin
and fresh toads and how children
can kill them without noticing too much.
somehow they just turn into stuffed animals
with their insides jangling.
somehow i don't appreciate
any amount of money until it's gone
and the weekday collapses around an empty hole
where i kept my accounts.
let's go to the free beach where they sell
free apples and mud dumplings!
it's very important to eat.
when i'm completely sun-tired
and sand-rid of
another obnoxious day
i'll let you know.
i'll let you have me at a flat rate.
i'll let you come find me
and drag my soggy body around.
please wave my arm politely at the outer parts of town.
