patina pinata

  • patina pinata
    collaboration with poet Bernard Welt
    The Ancient Mariner
    I don’t know what you’re 
    talking about. I had a pal
    who’s a pygmy. Is dot
    so hard to get? Cheeses, these
    people. Once I had fairly deep
    feelings, that’s true. But 
    like a column supports--
    well, it supports something, 
    and my point is: that’s
    a metaphor. What’s a meta
    for? Yes, I can smile and smile
    and be a villain. (Not as bad as it
    sounds.) Your smileage may vary.
    Ask me another. In that case,
    I’ll ask you: What’s the deal
    with Nature? No antwort? When I
    insist on the answer? What’s 
    the difference between man,
    manner, and moonkind? Why 
    can’t we all get along? I say
    there are no hidden agendas
    in any questions everly, and no end
    in sight. What is this--an ink
    which is in? If you want to know
    anything else, just axe me already. 
    Patina? I thought you said piñata.
