OR CURRENT RESIDENT

My family has a history

of grandfathers, it’s true, and not

all the furniture has been accounted for,

but here’s what the Mormons have

to say: rosacea is a common condition

and cannot be used as evidence of treason.

There may have been warm breezes in the distant past

but no Africans or even Indian

Indians. Yes, he, him, his proves

Neanderthals mated with Neanderthal-lovers

but those are stories for toddlers and at our sermons

childcare is always provided. So let us return to the ship:

we are warriors come to rename your cattle;

we are indentured servants named for queens.

Needless to say, I wish I were fatherless

as Adam and just as tan, but someone has to eat

on this side of the cafeteria; it might as well

be me.
