Still The Pluses Outweigh The Minuses


There's nothing funny
about getting
old
at night
you pull the foreskin
back
to give it
a good wash

the one that's not a bird
seems to grow
in the fetid environment
in the morning
I have to wash my bum
so the rubbing of the paper
doesn't aggravate my piles.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
