On A Roll

chagall backdrop

overheard this morning
at the Coney Island stop:

“Seriously? The dog is upset
because you didn’t
butter her roll?”

that bitch should know
I sympathize

if it tastes so nice
it should be
buttered twice

you know
how hard it is
to dunk with paws

little dignity nor poise
for those
licking themselves
in public

(what you do
in your own portico
is up to you)

I mean
don’t they know

there’s pekingese starving
siamese up in arms
pitbull up on iTunes

what’s so hard to get?

don’t upset
your pet

More On The Asterisk

chagall backdrop

Most make a cross
then bisect the diagonals
with an X
voila – l’asterisk

She did that
but then added
another set of lines
intersecting those
doubling the number of angles

It took her a while to render
her precise tight asterisks.

What Price Subtlety

I said I moved your yoga mat
She said undoubtedly

I said no, undoubtedly the mat has moved
presumably not on its own
moved by someone
very likely me
I am confirming that likelihood

They should teach you that in yoga
