The Long Island Sound

a little Mythopoeia….

.

The Long Island Sound

.

.

The high school reunion,

which I won’t attend,

Will be held

in Las Vegas,

Nevada.

.

I’ll go to Long Island,

out near the end,

Where they still say

in that fun way

“What’s da matta?’’

.

It’s odd what we say

what we’re really not thinking:

Magician’s with rabbits

and top hats.

.

When someone will say

Long Island is sinking,

All will await

’til someone tops that.

.

A marriage of two,

attended by many,

I’ll try not

to be

in the way.

.

Not knowing the many,

if indeed I know any,

I can lie like the lot

when I say:

.

The high mountain ranges

of New Mexico

Comes not from tectonics

but fission:

.

Where the moon

left the place

they still called Socorro,

.

And left

the high hills

on emission.

.

And then on Long Island

we’ll all sit to eat,

A custom,

post wedding

chat habit.

.

And especially nice

at these meals

is the treat

.

Of eating

each other’s

Welsh Rabbit.

.
