I AM A NATURAL WONDER

Great thinkers are bullshit unless they are dead.
Killing the buffalo was unnecessary.
The last buffalo is so cold so I have knit it this frock-
Like thing. The pattern
Of fish is a vestige from
A more political ocean.
See the vehicle
Broken down amid frozen grasses.
The vehicle is crowding the room with its tired and calamitous past.
Malcontent in the wasteland
Viewed from a great distance.
An empty oceanliner drifting across an ocean.
A frightened blunderer
Not dumb to its discontent
like a potatogun shooting
In the fading green light
Of the winter sun.
