Packaging Etc.

I think I saw you
on a package
of frozen fish
pointing and smiling
with all your might.
Capped teeth and a
housewife dress hanging off
you like a designer sack.
And your hair was all cut off.
A different lady than I knew in 1970.
And the fish was nothing special.

Sister Sally
Sister Sally
Sister Sally
Party girl
Dirt in her ears.

Empty Norman
Floating Norman
Simple boy
—Can’t grow whiskers.

Empty Norman
and Sister Sally
run off by morning
to passion’s back alley.

They silence the puritans
With red wrinkled answers
all bankers and lawyers
and singers and dancers.
