The Second Law Of Poetry Dynamics

Elizabeth Willis,
her schoolish ways in
pretty underpants,

the human abstract
finds you
in a jungle of words

that end up
at the doorstep
of Mr. Bones.

Mr. Bones takes them apart
and Henry walks in
to find the moist disaster,

one corner of it
lying by the sofa,
the other in Aztlan.

Chicano children gather like ants
and drag the bits
and pieces

to La Malinche.
Elizabeth runs naked
from the Spanish helmets

in a black and white movie
filmed beside a brown suit
once worn by Tino Villanueva in Giant.

Words crawl out
of other words,
between the thighs of words.
