Looking Out My Front Door

Robert Rauschenberg

for Robert Rauschenberg

If you dare to dispute
my definitive incongruity,
my jittery high spirits,
my neatly wrought
erotic geometry,
my carefully assorted
quips and gambits,
my overinflated
whims and vagaries,
my deliberate
cunning and guile,

I will quickly draw
the gun I don’t possess
and shoot you alive,
right on the spot.

Bang, Bang. Gotcha.
You are now awake.

Honorary Schizophrenic. Recent refugee. Displaced person. Old white male. Confidant of cassowaries.
