There are seventeen brands of water
on sale at Trader Joe’s and I’m thinking
Smart Water infused with
lavender essence, zero parts per billion,
because I want to be smart,
and lavender sounds like a Spring meadow—
lovers and their children,
being chased by bees
all the times I ran and how good
I got at running
environmentally enlightened beef
with an e-Coupon
redeemable for negative karma
gluten free organic non-GMO Gala apples
each handcrafted by a wild
Arizona mustang’s bastard Kachina-child.
It’s such a relief to be healthy again.
My eyes stare Hubble-blue at you.
I’m four inches taller than Jesus.
My abs are six-pack pop-top aphrodisiacs.
You, with eight reasons to doubt me,
forget your list and
help me carry these heavy bags.
