GO AWAY(,) SUFFERING



DON’T GO AWAY SUFFERING

Pull a rabbit
a gnarled lawncare specialist
coloured handkerchiefs from the sky

Look in the hedge:
there’s something there:
feet, lips, O elephants
a dossier of univocal significance

Goad a boat:
Unravel your internal organs
(at least the ones that are unravelable)
make the internal poodle
visible on the outside.
Digest! Digest! O trees!

Go away, suffering!
May disappointment and achievement
evaporate like national gas
and leave no smell.

Walk your shoulders
a helium baby inside your chest
Be happy as a sheaf
feel toast in mid-pop before
the clap of gravity’s warm and rather
obvious dove plugs you
back into the earth with
dazzling electric feet named
Herman One and Herman Two by
your ancestors frittering away time
way back when
