boar ring

 
yawning is almost growling
like a lion in the savannah
a monkey peels a banana
a ballet turns in an eternal wheel
chimes play the quarter hours
comb the hair that falls out
read machine instructions
save photos in albums
photograph the lion in action
give instructions to the monkey
endless hours and hours
no curls in the hair on the floor
snoring instead of yawning
like an ancient lion ballet
to the sound of chimes
that echo in banana peels
automatic photo machines
quarter-hour carousels
tick tock tick tock tick tock
tick tock tick tock
tick tock
paint the claws in red and blue
paint the skin in yellow and blue
dye your hair purple and blue
sink the claws into the blue skin
stick the voodoo photos
attack the hours of chimes
stacking the bones in the closet...
