Kittens And Puppies

Fevered juveniles sport
small animals, chum,
essential accessories.
Imagine graduation--dispersal,
dilution (Darwin)--and no bitch for your
Women will talk to you, now
that you have a small, mewling thing
that pisses and staggers
and sucks.

Walk (anywhere) Telegraph Ave. See
kittens on strings, see puppies on
hemp leashes, anchored to plastic
cups (see
the spare change swell and multiply).

Come September, there will be
green plastic trash bags leaking some
fluid or other off Telegraph,
behind the Free Clinic.
