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.
Draw a zigzag moustache below my nose
in permanent ink, stain my lips with black cherries,
carve a horn from my sacrum and blow my baby there
so cold so sweet so fair, take my eyeteeth
from round her neck and plant them in the orchard,
use darning needles and fishing line to sew
