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.
