Tricks and teases made a hatchet for the autopsy.
just say it was over, oh no. Too many cows
wanted gingerbread. Too many women
in the cellar wanted more time...
Tesla's ghost was on the radio for years
while the black nightingale sang but hardly
Too much static fuzzing. Too much
imitation current clogging the waves...
I swear you gave my ear a permanent scar
with all that dizzy disarray, tricks and teases,
bluffs that bragged with musky electric tusks...
Put the body
on the table and have done, I said. I'm through
discussing second grade and your mother's
lonesome eyebrows.You don't care about
the cause of death anyway...
just the wonderful way
you can chop.
