everything that rises

must be punched down

and kneaded.

romance draws this kind of reaction.

so do stray animals procreating

in alleyways, yowlingly.

everything that catches by surprise

must be hog-tied and loaded

into a van:

abnormally tall or short people (for example),

whimsical mother-in-laws, or a sudden longing.

casual spontaneities

are the enemies of order

and deserve a long drive

off a short pier

on a night with no moon.

everyone knows this.
