A Big Bird On Stilts


A big bird on stilts wrapped in gauze and tin foil
In terbium laskus per dellum
Shh- shh- shh- shush!

Vimanas supra modellum
Per turbium tempo lengua
vuh-'vuh vuh-'vuh vuh-'vuh vuh-Vuh!

To lack a day an hour or two
Three vultures vouchsafe victory
bing * bing * bing * bing

a politician asked if it is safe to go back in the water
as the sharks circle heuristically
profile thumb profile thumb profile thumb(uh) *pop*

The incredible shrinking plant it ferns
Weigh down upon Suwannee blubber
Hullabaloo hullabalewd hullabalouvre-ver


released October 28, 2015
