Let us please and be pleased
under this sharp sun
alone together

 
 
My beautiful picture
 
Ready or not
the sun drops
on us. The
wild conferences, the
interregional boundary committees
the back hallway
name callings, all
of it stops

 
 
My beautiful picture
 
We are the young
You are the bomb

 
 
My beautiful picture
 
Chairs grant us the chance
to concentrate and are therefore
the mighty Queens of the Furniture

 
 
My beautiful picture
 
When with a hatbox
you are in charge
of at least the hat
and probably more
