Hot dogs agog     hot dogs a-gag
godblessamerica how you love to eat!
Except  the Japs’ rising son’s
been  whipping us into shape
and taking the belt    a WWF cinch
girding an impossibly thin waist
for all that conveyor belt abundance.

Be My Valentine (Sort Of) By Gary Corseri

Dandelion Salad
February 14, 2009

My wife, my lover, my mate, my friend,
Till death do us part (or the heart
Finds an escape clause)-inseparable as
My own self’s clone (where I extrude, though,
You invert), think you nothing without me (and me
Even more nothing without you).
Think we are one living pulse, one beat
Of the Eternal Beatnik. In all the hoary annals
And canals-we sing singularly.
We are je ne sais quoi and sine qua non.

We are what we are-only more so.
Let me not volley your praises to the sun.
Let me not whisper the shadow of your namecard.
I have your number at number.com.
I lie upon my chocolate escutcheon
Sighing the impossible, unwavering love-note
That manages somehow never to screech,
Beseaching in nooks and crannies and fields,
Finding you somehow year after year
Familiarly reassuringly
Dappled and dewy in the great melange.
