Calculating the density of brass.

Calculating the density of brass rings 

and how many would it take to complete those twelve tasks. 

I’m told drinking might help me forget. 

Those cold suburb sweats 

the names of streets etched 

stories of this old town.
A Marching band for our salvation 

children dressed like sailors 

I drink when I wish to forget and 

I’m still waiting for the man on the moon.
The bathtub sailed before I was born 

the golden egg sold like those rooms. 

A museum filled with more tears 

than I thought possible.

Do you think we will ever find where they hid that box 

with the missing blue shoe.

are they still sounding the horn in hope 

that the hounds return your calls.
