Geminis aren’t the only ones who love Columbo, right?

Turtles move for carrots,

frogs tuck their eyes in the their mouths,

gas prices will never be what they were-

but neither will I.


We tried crow yoga

but the bastard birds just waited

until we were in crow pose

then they pecked us in the ass

and stole our keys.


I tried to carry tasks like a came

but I got lumpy in all the wrong places.

Now I look to unburden myself

of pride and approval and control

and see if I can still cross the desert.


We are legends on our own sofas.

We can tuck our chins into other chins.

We move for rum and pie and watch

as clouds race by.
