Joe was not tongue tied.
“Let’s call a blow job a blow job.”
He administrated Gauloises
rolled up inside t-shirt shoulders.
Less hummingbirds than usual this year
most ambushed during their migration
by South American praying mantises.
Such a ferocious taste for brain keeps
all of us constantly on the lookout.
