Revenge of the Love Song of the Boy Parachutist

This is the only thing I am
good at please
don’t ask
if I am okay I will give you a sign
it will be
below me the dog goes and goes his plumage
snow and chutney
if I live and learn
to cook I will greet you each morning a platter
in my two
steaming arms if
I am not okay it won’t be much different arms spread
over winter
gooseberry bushes
the dog approaching in his cape of joy  end
