Peter Jay Shippy Poems
Portrait Of God On Work Release
I walk in the park
and select a maple leaf.
With my Sharpie I write:
YOU ARE HERE.
Carefully, I place the leaf
back where I found it.
Because his neighbor was a witch
Lucas agreed to paint her house
For birdseed. After the second coat
He put a sunflower kernel
Under on his tongue, washed it down
With a boilermaker or three
