American Superlative

This exceptional fashion, and

this hamburger is

one of the best.  It comes from

wanting to sing a song clearly.

That’s the miracle of

revelation or nothing. This

is an exceptional price for gas.

Prophets drive the countryside

in sincere bear skins

and come up with a religion.

Blood pie.  Blood on your eye.

Blood on the front

porch, blood doesn’t lie.  We write

Silent Night. All of these flies.  I do

have a creek I go to, where we are all

dancing in the open mud.
