"An extraordinarily strange bird / Pursued by a shouting should / In pursuit of the exact right word // If I could find it I would"

Orthorexic Ornithology


I eat a little rice one day

A few beans on the day following

An alternation thought to complete me


But I ran out of apples completely

Which were the best part I would say

Of this systematic swallowing


Obsessive idea and theory

Which tends to become rather dreary

Without the apples but it is raining

And I am afraid to drive

Out there so I will leave off complaining


I am remaining alive

Whatever it is that means

I have eaten today's beans


I guess I have a lot of explaining

To do to be understood

An extraordinarily strange bird

Pursued by a shouting should

In pursuit of the exact right word


If I could find it I would

Stay inside, be a recluse, you will be better for it...I am on the road 6 days a week, 300 miles a day and it ain't fun, although, what the hell, its a living...Ed

How you turn an otherwise dull thing into a poem is part of your mystique and you do this so well.
