The Cauliflower of the Wild


Conversation with Wife 22

Your closed computer made noises last night,
bongs and dongs.
“Bongs and dongs?”
I meant bongs and gongs.
“I prefer bongs and dongs.”
I won’t touch bongs and dongs.
“Do you do bongs?”
I do do bongs, I don’t do dong.

“I wonder who first made yeast bread?”

“That cauliflower we stole from the field
in Croatia by the sea, remember how good it tasted
The Cauliflower of the Wild?”
Wasn’t that by Jack Lunchean?

She says
“I need poems for my Spring issue of The City
so I softly sing
My bedroom springs don’t work no more
I’m falling to the floor.
She turns to the group
“That’s what happens
when he gets his 3rd cup of coffee.”

“We’re like dogs with money waiting to be fed.”
