Anyone Can Do What They Can Do

by Samuel Derrick Rosen

Cut my karmic rip-cord.  Shower me in angel dust.
Let me embrace the gray, this isn't love
at first sight, this isn't blindness
at the twinkling of any eye, this isn't the time
for the blowing of any trumpet.
Anyone can do
what they can do.  Didn't you know this?

Or are you a follower of philosophic fashion
in this penultimate time?  This always
penultimate time.

Drown me in bacon blood
why don't you???
