AWAY

a sparrow
and a worm

came to my
funeral

which left the sparrow
and a sparrow hawk

sparrow flew
like a missile
but hawk
had stealth

and so, just
the hawk
(which I forgot
about though
it pecked
my eye out)

and since a one-eyed
friend of death
is not much
to see
she flew off,
pragmatically

soared high and true
from where, if she had desired,
could get an AWACS view

sparrow, worm, hawk
came to my funeral but
forget them, they
are unimportant

let’s concentrate
on the time machine
arriving suddenly with
can of worms
(unopened)

now,
you are talking!
