Experimentations in Abstract Postmodernism

             "The Grave of the Great Alley of Clarity Cats" by Michael Giardina



Food for rejecting his feet

The martinis passed out,
reclined back   into the back
below chairs   behind
tables of clam broth.

The building filled with cream and
greenery seeped into the water.
Yellowed bodies plunged
into cans of puréed corn.

The food on the floor fumbled
    in the thick   music and smiled
at her   scooping hands,
then coasted   to the other
end of the table.

None of this is as thick as it should be.
So I tug   rain into the kitchen
to scare the   female ferret
straight   out   of my salt shaker.
