OCTOBERFEST

 

A Capriccienga with Fay Aoyagi, Alice Benedict and Alex Benedict
San Francisco
30 June 1997

 

 

Octoberfest           a midget won the drinking contest

slipping the third newspaper from the stack

his hat           that's the one I want

White House counsel reads the President's old e-mail

quicksand swallows her mule

from the sunporch           summer lightning

mosquito bite on his right buttock

in the gutter           spinning top

one red tulip in the field of daffodils

SPF2           even between each toe

gift coupon for plastic surgery

chair lift stops halfway up the mountain

honeymoon in Switzerland           my gay cousin

a bit of ear           $30,000,000

McDonald's receives five stars in Moscow

after the earthquake           mastodon bone exposed

dry grass           a rustle in the night
