Bob Genevro Poems
Comments about Bob Genevro
The First Anniversary Sonnet
We stood and proclaimed 'I do' wedding wows
and the organ grinded
The Taco Bell Canon in D Major
and Chopin's Polonaise Mayonnaise in Egg Flat.
We dashed into the Sausalito Hotel
into the Queen Victoria room
sipping gold champagne, clicking crystals,
shedding our fig leaves...and multiplying.
Let's celebrate our Paper Anniversary at the Gypsy Cellar.
The candlelight steak dinner comes with a violinist
who will serenade us
to Leon Russell's ballad 'Song for You'.
Edna St. Vincent Millay sums up my glee:
'I only know that summer sings in me.'
Sister Ichabod Crane
stares behind her wire-rim spectacles
as the class slump into their seats.
This is Class Picture Day at Nativity School.
Boys reek of Butch Wax and Wildroot Creme Oil.
White arrow shirts and salt n pepper corderoys
stiffen like cardboard from laundry starch.
Girls smell of Toni Home Permanents and 5-and-Dimestore perfumes.
