by Heikki Huotari


In lieu of plastic flowers & balloons at twenty
intersections may there be an interim & may all
twenty newly licensed drivers thrive & these days
everybody’s a comedian including me & in my
dream you ask if that’s an ocelot & I say That’s an
ocelot to ask
& I say Down in front & I say La la I
can’t hear you
as my mother’s in the house & one
day everyone who has a mother has a hula hoop.
The next day no one does.
