Around the House

Eric Baizer

for Buster Keaton

with all these controls
I could hook up the mushrooms & noodles
for a buttery rendezvous
but somehow I always end up with experiments
like rice & potato stew & boiled egg parts

the new skyline of beer cans
is a row of upright Americans
who are drunks
scorning their insights of two minutes ago
& promptly having more insights

I was Albert Schweitzer
til the bugs ate up my best sweater
