' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Very Unchristmassy Christmas Tankas (For The One And Only Al And His Mandolin) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

She laughs as the shark
stops: just short of her head.
Then...both of them: grin!
Camera clicks & we finish
our Aquarium visit.

*******

Statue cries pigeon
shit tears rolling down its face.
Once a warrior
now merely a worrier
about birds and their...ugh...poo!

******

Insects of the bed
creep here...craw there...everywhere .
I smile at this
infestation of the sheets
your hairpins...free of your hair.


*****

Registration time.
'Sir...Sir! ' he screams '...I've got you...'
'...for frus tration! ' You sure have!
I tick off his name in red.

Happy Christmas Al...just listened to you on the radio with your brother. You are a real talent and a delight. Please accept these little titbits in homage to your wit and invention.

love Dónall of Dónall
