Our Snoring Consumer


It's when he's quiet
he's most likely
to strike, biting himself, a crude form of

rumination *qua* ruination. So says his
'book, ' the same
proclaiming 'mind of an 8-yr-old'

('Me forty-four, ' he rebuts, helpfully) .
Forbidden
to sleep off lazy Sundays and

tethered masturbation, asleep
as a
log thru the

Sawmill, alerting
all who
Care @

3AM that
all
is well.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
