These are the Thoughts


THESE ARE THE THOUGHTS THAT TURN TO THE NUTTING SEASON






who will cook me a drunk goose


in the  
asthenopia of
the


sporades 


things
are


thingmotropic


mycoheterotrophs
are
mycorrhizal cheaters


squirrels are said to be feeding in cornfields
crows getting murdered on poppies


family automobile running on
stiff and faithless shoes


some might say


my
goose
is
already


cooked
