poem to read on a fire

tomorrow all the people are replaced with tigers
& they don’t need coats
& there is more understanding, or less
& they are good at stringing music down their spines
& they breathe in small wisps
within the snowy cold
i took a tiger picture of a tiger lake and
hung it for you with the tiniest nail in the universe
the dollar stores are replaced with 99 cent stores, and so on

without every moment

a cold rabbit is
sitting down
the sun is shining just
through the clouds
lately ive been walking real good
i opened
a black door
do you know what time it isnt
the president is alive
the grocery store has oranges
year round
eight years ago in hawaii i drank out of a cononut with a bendy straw

i dont wanna be president
i want to be sitting
which i am
& im gonna take a nap
