Baba has been hurt
to his own satisfaction
now America is dreaming
Who made this big fat moon
swing down low below the yellow door
Is it Marc Chagall above floating
or Pollock with a big splash
just about De Kooning abstract.
Morning comes down
with a paint brush crushed up in blood
from a car crash...
