THE RATTLING BRAIN

this lady with the ratlling brain
this gentleman with the brain slightly less exciting
this feeling of freedom when
muddy waters starts naming names
the house on finchley road
or on broadway
where the brains have been picked up
there’s no new movie on the odometer
and nobody knows what a struggling odometer might do
please don’t rattle
don’t move the capo up five frets
the lady sleeps
the gentleman reeks of silence
i myself
can’t handle both
