‘STEP INTO MY WIGWAM’ by Heather Christie

Every day I send the orphans a political message.

I say, Friends, you may be trying,

but you are not trying hard enough–

the ceiling is steadily lowering itself and one day

we will return home with our bags of frozen vegetables

to find ourselves utterly crushed.

At least we are living in ingenious times.

I have learned that it’s impossible

to smooth out a grave with a rolling pin

and anyway ecology dictates cremation.

I am so fond of this body, esp. my brain

which is full of bees attending

their convention on How to Tame a Nightstick.

They have miniature boxes of corn flakes.

You can eat as many as you’d like.
