Where our protected sustenance lies
In a bale of 1s & 0s
We burrow down to die

A Witch Hazel Wand Behind Your Eyes

I prefer a hazel fork to witch
when cool waters need a’found,
though I have heard some prefer an elm
to help ’em wiggle under ground.

Yes, a feller’s gotta be a whole man
to water witch with any sense;
an untainted branch of hard wood
straight and true, no deviants.

No, I never trust a witch that wiggles
with a weepy willer switch.
And I never mind book-learnedĀ folk
claim my witchin’s just coincidence.

A Witch Hazel Wand Behind Your Eyes

In Pittsburgh

We heard a story
about a man
with a plan
to sell one testicle
to some scientists
for $35,000.

We immediately dreamed up
35,000 ways to spend that money,
knowing that it only takes one nut
to become dynastic.

One could invest just the right way – a little seed money – live a minimalist lifestyle on the residuals alone.

Or, one could start a non-profit dedicated to ending war,
The One Ball for All Life Foundation.

Or, perhaps a non-profit dedicated to preventing hunger,
Mission: Grocery Sack Everlasting.

Something,
anything,
everything achieved
by giving up
one,
precious
plum.

Alas, the google soon informed us
that we were out of luck.

This was a one-time deal
for a research project
testing the feasibility
of a prosthetic testicle
and not
the starting shot
of a gonad gold rush.

Dreams deflated then,
we resigned
to sell ourselves
the old-fashioned way:
a day at a time,
$8 an hour,
come what may.

Poem Found In A Discussion With William Golding About Lord Of The Flies

attempt to trace
the defects of society
to the defects of human nature.

the shape of a society
must depend
on the ethical nature
of the individual.

then adult life appears,
dignified and capable,
enmeshed in the same evil
as the children.

and
the officers,
having interrupted,
prepare to take
the children in a cruiser
which will be hunting its enemy
in the same implacable Way.

[yet] who will rescue
the adult
and
his cruiser?
