Are You Satisfied?
A marine biologist said:
manatees are slow moving animals
without a hint of irony.
I want a song to sum up
the philosophy of Donald Trump
in less than three chords.
Separate lights and darks
to organize a spectrum.
If God loves ugly
I finally understand my childhood.
I kept laughing when I drew infinity.
If I could put out fires with gasoline
I would be a well-done ocean heart.
