On the Suicide of the infamous DQ Diving Cardinal
He
Who thinks glass
Is a metaphor for company –
(Reflection of Ketchup,
Worth it, worth it, worth
It) –
Whose gods are the gods
Of such small stuff –
Spooned ice, white hair,
Each others noise over
The rattled window
(Too- clean window, red
Ketchup window)
And
Birds
Who do not know
They are dying.
