Desperate Characters In An Past Life

if this poem survives another minute
notify the authorities

the old neighborhood brown as ever
no tapirs seen yet

the cops still beat the crap out of you
underneath the waterfall

have you drank beer or smoked cigars
by the gullible Guadalupe River lately?

carpet in the corridor of your comfortable home
runs back and forth

an anatomy lesson, boys,
girls have innies
