20 poems

(my 2nd favorite poem from this book)


today there are tubers
I mean there are almost tubers
they stand in the water
in a circle very stoneheng ish
but they look damn silly
if you ask me holding
their inner tubes looking
at each other like children
I wonder who will finally
light this candle
and they stand there
and they stand
just standing
they stand
