Boating With Bruce, by John Levin, after Luncheon of the Boating Party, by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, ca. 1881, Public Domain

A trip down Flemory Gain,
where nonsense rules,
and rabbits swing on vines,
zipping past a thatched roof village,
like Tarzan in a movie,
laughing to the rafters,
comedians, painters, actors,
sadness all forgiven,
tragedy intense within,
energy to the Moon -
That’s how high it really goes,
when time stops in its orbit,
