Poem Saved On a Tuna Fish Sandwich by Bill Jansen



Poem Saved On a Tuna Fish Sandwich
Bill Jansen

Geeks were eating the playground
Korean War movies
Mahogany television sets
Girls on the monkey bars
Making embarrassing
Whinnying sounds
The school bus
The lunch pail
The 4th grade
The hippo ears
On Mrs Raven
Jacket potato zippers
Stuck on something
You need to know
About Hop-Along-Cassidy
And Jesus

The kids
Writing suicide notes
Or editing zines
On peanut butter laptops
Wonder bread
Mayonnaise
Charley the Tuna
Windows 1958

The wait
The download
The upload
The slide
Into
Sawdust
Stardust
Sawdust
Recess without end
Amen
Ideas
Those ideas
Behind the fence
Like bad guys
Finishing
A cigarette.
