Howlings in Favor of Tulsa

He learned the seven Gracias
in the Countess Second's
flat. The reality principle changed the face
of religious discipline: tossed up girls

with Aquinas buttocks.
spilled Cosmos made patterns
of roses in the pool. Raoul Vaneigem

ended up on one of those Iraqi playing cards.
To be free,
and ice skating! Marvel of the furry
caterpillar scooting across

fragrant, come-and-get-em lawns.
We are saddened.
Communist floes icened
his face. Our country pays Puritanism

to heave out doubt.
We are the floridas of Tulsa,
but we are the cavities of the Future!
