Intercalary

  1. Dust

Dust
and
dust
and
dust

What’ll we do?

  1. Turtle

Oat beard
grass heads
and turtle,
tiddly-winks of
the same coin,
passive and
spun

  1. Preacher

Full of the Holy
in the grass,
here’s me preachin’
with eyes of dust

  1. Owner

To profit the dust
some worshipped
mathematics

but God knows
what measured men
squatting in dust

  1. Ruins

Like jalopies
bustin’ with sawdust –

Christ, what they is
jus’ sold is

God Almighty
folks in ruins

(cut-up: The Grapes of Wrath – John Steinbeck)
