Freddy’s Lament


I took a swim in the sea.

my life started over.


my boner lasted longer.

my appetite swelled.


my hunting skills were sharper.

although I never hunt.


I wanted the hurricane-watch

software package advertised on tv.


I called the toll free number:

sold out.


my boner sagged.

hunger annoyed.


broke, I relished a dip,

but could not budge.

We bring the harvest and lay it at an altar
of bread crust, pierced gold earrings, and the bones of our first born Banana. . .
