How radioactive is that fish in rads,
Let met pull out my Becquerel exchanger.
Whoa! That’s high. Let me calculate lifespan
Against protein requirements.
The mercury dropped in the mouth of a dying day,
Not because a poet had died, but because
A poet had not lived. Would Don Delillo
Fill the gap? It seems not, here.
Jesus, the guy can write about small things,
A sparrowfall, Hitler studies, breath-mints,
the way his daughter held his hand, not
to cling, but to re-assure him, against himself.
How fragile. How angry is the chimp?
I’ll ask you about that later.
