two of three

Laughing and desperate

   I have stuff to do here.

And that makes it so much worse,

   its what they call a stuffer,

Table watches and creamed herring.

You’ve met my friend Kathleen,

   Hey, Mammy.

Have you heard the about

   the Jew that goes to the moon?

Doesn’t it capture the essence

   of what it means

   to be

   a secular Jew 

   in this country?

It comes out pureed.

Seen and not heard or;

   not even seen.

Solidified in a jar,

   is it some kind of breakdown

   of organic matter?

If you don’t mind me asking?
