Edward Ogle the Third

by Peter Erich

Assimilated wheat germ
integrated ant worm
the capital of Brazil.

Gram-rock perm 
the airplane squirm
the camel of Bummer Hill.

New appendages
sexy beverages
picked from the landfill.

Three dollar tax return
born in a thunderstorm
holding a daffodil.

Sitting in a space trapeze
petting supply chain geese
packed to the gill.

Left to be read
on the bedspread
alone with a fungicide pill.
