forgive my politics

we mobilized early.
i’ve learned, though.
my bible study leader
has been diagnosed;
the headaches are a tumor.
Krishnamurti,
who taught us to see
through the veil
and lectured musically
and at length
on our embrace
of the infinite,
parted his hair
straight sideways

to cover his baldness.
this morning
you are an insufferable
happy-mouth
and tempt the cosmos.
the toaster
is so full of crumbs
it may combust.
that would be of a piece with the sublime. so be careful.
