How To

Shine brightly night upon a happy man 
and watch him fill 
the shallow hole he dug:

Open his wallet.  
Infect his leather with latex & wealth.

Hand that man awash in darkness
a torch, not a lantern, 
and teach him 
the meaning of trampled daffodils
scorched writing poems to April.

Desterilize dirt and dust the dungeon
of a middle-aged dragon.
Tomatoes will vine and carrots leaf.

Suffocate the happy man 
you taunt 
with digs of faraway joy.

Suffer brown eyes of an innocent boy
who tinkers a muted flashlight
buried alive by his father’s spoon.
