“Forethoughts Like This – Sonnenizio on a Line from Bob Kaufman” by Brandon S. Roy


And in the imaginary forest,
the shingles hippo becomes the gay unicorn.

free from the confines of morality;
it's long pink hair let down and flowing.

chocolate porn is fun to watch,
even color queens like to blow notes

wood chips and drunks have much in common
with the refusal of peaches and tear treated shirts

animals puzzle over fears of radio meters
flying of the returns something about this is really weird

extraordinary centers of birds that seem
to move but yet stay still

a blue dog looking for a coffin in the grass
beats driving away bears from a wreck
