Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch tried-out
for the part of Mary Ann
but lost out to Dawn Wells,

labia against labia
like warring factions
on college campuses of war-paint.

The Ohio National Guard
settled the dispute
by shooting them kaput.

From Maynard G. Krebs
to suffering from crabs,
the Ionian shores ionized

in the Nebraska snow
which Henry had to put up with,
the front of Candy Gamez on the ground.

The SS Minnow bobs up and down
in the storm
that takes the television set to pet.

Changing channels from the barrio
Henry sees the years fly apart
until Aztlan like California falls into the sea.
