The Dog & Pony

by Richard Epstein

Imagine that. It’s time to go
Again. Where to? The Bleeding Heart,
The Feinting Vessel? I don’t know.
The clock is beeping. Let’s depart

These premises. The Woofing Mutt?
The Nun in Chains? Oh, any beer
Will do, if I have pictured what
You plan to do and I to hear.

Under the Harrow? We must went.
Must shuffle off. The Cow & 4?
We have our shoes, we’ve paid the rent.
Le Magic Bus? The Swinging Door.
