For an erection lasting more than four hours
tell him you don’t agree with him.
The most desirable of her pots
authored a vast intelligence.
Don’t make me sick of this,
followed every year
(I assume that’s what everybody does),
to return at 6 o’clock in the morning.

Everything is changed. Even as we speak,
parliaments fall, people emerge and die.
Was this revenge for the last time?
Efforts at not being American
expanded, climbing the fan of the new continent,

hard as the proverbial rock.
