Appreciating the Simple Things

To be a pop singer is terrific
especially when you can
dance like a gazelle. If you're a newspaper
reader perhaps you recognize
the way in which the words create
bits of information
that sorta hop along on, like,
funky chopsticks.
It is almost as simple as lining up
the letters in the alphabet and learning
to arrange those letters in ways
that create tiny portals to
something else.
Something else, now that's what
I'm thinking of.
Even at this moment a synthesizer
is fading in and soon the soft
swoon of a face will begin
splitting. It is the shiny teeth
I really like.
I really like the shiny teeth.
