Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Poem That's Not About Her
 
~*~

It's the thirty-third of April
in the year of the floating train
The desert is slowly drowning
in the pink polyester rain

The Santa Ana winds have brought
the elephants and `roos
The dogs listen to dandelions
in hope of happy news

Everyone is gone except
the doctor with three arms
And even he is not immune
to the dead girl and her charms

The screaming mutes of South Ceylon
decry the empty skies
And a poem that's not about her
is the truest of my lies
