In honor of Children’s Book Week, here’s a photo of an awesome kid.
In memory of Ray Manzarek. R.I.P. 1939-2013
My stomach aches, and a dull fullness pains
my body, as though entire fistfuls I had eaten,
or emptied an entire bag to the dregs
and one minute later, sunk into lethargy:
I am not plopped here envying your perfect
shape, but rather that you are a too perfect spirit
of a root vegetable, and in some crunchy scheme
of artificial flavoring, you sing me blissfully
to sleep, bathed in crumbs, profoundly sedate.
