THE CMMDR HAS SWALLOWED A RAT
Remove the smart phones, trash the iPads;
Cancel the mail, extinguish all texts.
Hope is a gateway drug: don’t do it.
The bowels of Burbank offer up
This grisly sight:
The Cmmdr has swallowed a rat.
Hollywood proffers this oily eyed yellow furred gift
for services rendered.
He stands now a beneficiary
(here in the dusk sweet street)
of a rodent,
full of so much sad wonder.
