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
