the kitchen sink

~

the kitchen sink  (  knis nehctik eht  )





the kitchen sink is singing songs

of physicists in silk sarongs


the morning mist is milking goats

as chemists float in duffel coats


the kettle steam is blearing here

of jericho & jenkin's ear


the toaster smokes a phantom frog

a murmur purrs a catalogue


a botanist is chasing tails

of barking snarks across the dales


the breezes stink of dungarees

& headless monks in nunneries


an apple cart is shedding loads

& farmers gargle speckled odes


the kitchen sink is singing songs

& so we glow & hymn along

...
