Cycling the rutted Yangtze, SaintPierre
of the tinfoil sauerkraut is flung against
a lowpitched abutment, carapace un
damaged. This confrontation of breastbone
& misbehavior bewilders our half
pint, doddering, polytheistic old
timer, this maverick bottling co
existence with anticlimax—
sentencing watercress to newfangled
semicolon. Hah! To trope on cinnabar
is to dislocate a bonanza of
spermatozoa & incertitude, where
to inhere is to impinge, where to bash
is to electrify.
