Amphibian Conversation

If to a toad
you spoke

Back to you it
might croak.

A frog in
the pond

Might also
respond.

The Skunk In Two Parts

I.

An Animal

With a Whole Lot

Of Funk

Is

The Skunk.

II.

On a Carousel

Or in the Darkness

A Skunk Will Still Smell.

Peculiar Questions

What would
A Raven
Look like
If it
Was Shaven?
What would a
Flamingo
Look like
If it
Played Bingo?
What would
A Lamb
Look like
If it was shaped like
A Clam?

Before The Dinosaurs

Cockroaches
Move slowly
In Persia

Drunk on opium
And hashish
They hate
To fight.

I go to sleep
And remember that
They are the only
Survivors of

The holocaust

The hallowed cast

The haloed cast.

Purple Splendor

Shiny and purple trumpets
Tiny bright and purple
Hyacinth flowers
Make fragrant hours
Fragrant trumpets
Bright purple hyacinths
Inside an artichoke jar
On a marble table of carved cherubins
I love thee more than
My color TV.

Ode On Snow

Snowstorms!
Piles of snow!
Soft, crystalline white snowflakes!
Feathered rain!
Powder snow!
Falling snow!
Up to the kneecaps snow!
Snow stuck on sidewalks and streets!
Snowballs!
Snowmen!
Snowdrift!
Sledding on soft snow!
Crunching snow!
Snow cones!

and the
rainbow
became brigher
and brighter
until it was gone
but the child kept looking at the sky
to see a
rainbow
