The Oval occupies the mind; it does whatever it pleases

Wherefore, the Hindenburg docks with the Goodyear

& killer whales bump like a bathtub

full of watermelons

& the bathyscaph nurses at the mother ship as a beehive

at the pear tree

& the hedgehog kisses a quail egg. Selah.

Alleluia. The eyes of the Oval roam to & fro across the face

of the earth

& rest in the feathers of the peacock

& lie on every spreadsheet

Come & see the acacia leaves that applaud the great neck

of the giraffe

These are what grew out of the mouth of the Oval
