Termite Poem #2

The magazines were covered in termites,
and they didn’t read a thing or look at the pictures.
People get real saucy when you do stuff uncopyable,
like when Lisa Simpson explains the difference
between jealous and envious.

He did that prayer wheel clapping gesture
at his bad dog, as a last plea for listening.
His brain was severed while picking shrooms
near the government’s experimental weed operation
from the 70s, which everyone knows is accessible
to giant fishing lures, hauling in overgrown plants
with dot matrix serial numbers over a razor-wire fence.
