[lit-ideas] Re: Sunday Poem

they closing G.I. Joe's so I bought some plastic rope
the finest kind for a hammock is my best hope
now what my life needs to be complete
is for a well-versed woman to come and to teach
this boy how to splice
that would be nice
i need a spla-sin teacher
who knows how it goes
a spla-sin teacher
who ain't afraid to show
not a dean
not an aesthete
an' no damn athlete
what i require
is far far higher
a splicing fool
straight from sail school
show me the ropes
get a man's hopes up
teach me
complete me
help me
use this weird-lookin' tool
