Until the Specialist Sees


The Windows are all open and
The windchimes are going and
My neighbors are toying
With their piano the way a chef
Plays with a knife. Beautiful sounds
In the night like music from Harpo’s
Just without Shug to sing. Everything
In life is perfect, in its right place,
Except for one word:


As in, “may be the case.”
Officially the worst word
In the entire English language
And should never be used
In any translation–

You might see significantly less
Sunsets than you thought. You might
Be pumped full of chemicals and
Lose all your hair and the pain
Might be so great you don’t care
To wax your eyebrows–

Or might those go, too?


Say something!
