ODE TO CARONA (revised)

ODE TO CARONA (revised)

You are clownlike, happiest on your hands,feet to the stars, and moon-skulled, gilled like a fish.

A common-sense thumbs-down on the dodo's mode. Wrapped up in yourself like a spool, trawling your dark, as owls do.

Mute as a turnip from the Fourth Of July to All Fools' Day, O high-riser, my little loaf.

Vague as fog and looked for like mail.

Farther off than Pau Pau Guana. Bent-backed Atlas, our traveled prawn.

Snug as a bud and at home Like a sprat in a pickle jug.

A creel of eels, all ripples.

Jumpy as a Mexican bean.

Right, like a well-done sum.

A clean slate, with your own face, for your Puppet Master is lost never to race.
