"

a small boy flings an octopus at the moon.

thinking, this is why suction cups,
thinking, i’ve escaped bedtime
and must make it count.

when he’s older, when he’s eleven
and driving to work, smoking the day’s
first cigarette, riding the ass
of the car in front of him,
which likewise, in a chain
on to Sparta, on to Troy,
he remembers the octopus
waving goodbye, all those arms
without hands, all that solitude
without a kiss.

the other people in the car
are asleep, their open mouths
remind him of vowels, of sounds that hold
other sounds together.

very quietly, on tiptoe, he plays piano
in his head.

very quietly, a woman three cars up
plays piccolo in her head.

the man to their side
waving the baton in his head
is proud, proud as can be,
this is a difficult piece, harder even
than life, harder even
than being God,
since who would tell you,
comb your hair, brush your teeth,
put your pants on
if you are God?

the Devil
is the only one who could,
but like a robin
who can’t sing, the Devil
says nothing to God.

pianissimo, the boy thinks,
feeling the root of his tongue
move with the thought,
which leads to the new thought,
“the tongue has a root,”
which leads to the new thought,
“i am the only proof

of the theory of me.”
