Comments about Stan Rice
Necking at the Drive-In Movie
I'm glad their rouge cream is widening
in the cokebox and their movie
is a liquid camera pupil
like ice cream upstream in a dream
I'm glad their rash catalogue

I'm glad they are a Mexico
of parrots melting their crests.
I'm glad their sweet ravings
cream in the gardens of stone.
