you know you're gonna have a bad day
the instructions to your your prayer wheel
are in spanish and a bunch of homeless guys
with shotguns are coming down the hill.
a coffee filter for a skull-cap (you hope the Rabbi doesn't notice.)
Someone is poking the manticore from behind and it hasn't figured out
where the problem lies. Yet.
once ahead of the rain the running never stops
the beasts must still be watered and fed otherwise
you may become the food-
(that thing you eat will eventually eat you, anyway.)
