"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

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