Ode on James Rosenquist's Lanai (1964)
Deck your canvas with peach yolk candy
set prostrate, impala.
You cruise blue hue through sexpink
taffy; Drink Lemon-sky on downside
with our loud wide fancy.
Too true (true), of well-crude minds…
to pencil-rind erasure, happy.
What silver-spooned smooth oil
looms America's Ticonderoga,
Hands begging to a cool sip
for each missing mouth.
