Feathers Stuffing

at an antique store i saw a bird_bath,

holy water tub with pillar

and snatched it.

i hailed a cab to the church,

and gave the guy something

substantial to help me drag it

in the foyer.

i poured in evian,

knelt back into a murphy's oiled pew

and watched 'placebo effect'.




he said america was crafted out of fruit cake.

he said you could build an igloo out of fruit cake.

john ashcroft'd make a cadillac from_

the constitution's one,

"we're the lucky ones,"

he'd laugh murmur in,

a rock-kneed bear hug.

never did i tell him to stop.
