Every fifth gumball
is laced
with the thin green film
of Corporate America
and an odd fascination
for Cuban cigars.

Cadillacs cause cancer.

When read from the stratosphere,
the U.S. Interstate Highway system
spells beefsteak tomatoes in Cherokee.
(We all know what that means.)

Have you noticed
how the bugs buzz these days?
When you swat them they hover
and don’t quite die.
