on your front lawn. i do not puddle.
i am no slouch. i did not relish
the enchantment of your touch

when you gave me two lumps
of coal to see your angelic face
nor did i feel the tenderness

when you draped this schmattah
around my neck to keep me warm.
I will not be back again someday

Mike Casetta
