a tale of micromania*
By Chris Wayan 1979
for Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Watch this little poem he yelled|
to the listeners round his milk cartoon
like pigeons dumb enough to settle
for crisp images of hamburger bun
and old lady french bread
instead of the real transubstantiated stuff--
This poem he says, turning slowly
This here poem, he hoots, has just circumnavigated its world!
Friends, my poem orbits localer than astronauts
circumnavigates right well the Poet Planetoid.
perhaps a low orbit these days is wise
If you must circumnavigate something he says,
Circumnavigate something small.
Yes, Jerry Chameleon Brown said that.
And Reagan smiled and economic angels beamed, and all the world was good.
Limited, and good.
