don’t say things like that, an onion is a living thing
even if it burns my eyes out with the force of the wind
of this cold white peak we live on
don't say things like that my darling
for these two weeks with seastars we will swim
congratulate the teamsters on their new seaplanes
if you could see those big red birds swoop down for a landing
you might not say things like that

while there’s beauty in this world, I’ll see to it
while there’s some kick in this girl, I’m gonna use it, I’ll abuse it

is that the pulse of electrons
or the woodwind release
the sawbreath overhead that shaves back all the eucalyptus trees
or just a line in a verse
don't say things like that my darling

for these two weeks, at least,
we’ll drive as fast as we can
play upon the fears of the world we’re living in
and not the world we’ve been given
you don’t say things like that

where there’s beauty in this world, you see through it
you never learned how to fight, and you can’t out-drive this need to be right
