Recipe by Jay Passer

ancient trees
leaves fail to cling

personality independent of the poem wearing it

blue jeans
plaid skirt
argyle socks

the scheme of things Superman or Hoover vacuum
killing the dreams off the carpet on your knees
crumbs of a broken drunk or a moon full of eyes

wheat milk bone dung
gloom antecedent
lost heart of an impending attack

corn yeast sugar water
brim my cup then off to slaughter
