final oceanic junk channel-deepened
by temporal bo'sun of the universe
are you some castaway floating sea
kelp island where dawning abendland
in elysian fields of restfulness recon-
structs her deadly breeding grounds?
or are you one of the gods sun ra
maybe following the comet kohoutek?
are you in favour of daylight savings
bonsai maintenance massive oil wars
or just some mosquitoes flying through
the dredged & dying murray wetlands?
could you be an untapped source
of poisons for travelling parasites
or are you still hiding that sneaky Y2K
virus in your unpopped pimples?
see the ANZAC memorials to the rest
of the earth's extinct flora & fauna
that within your vast circumference
kick against the pricks & crash down
or else act like cruel coat hangers
& behead those riding underneath trees
blending superstition with the brave
recommendations of commissioners
to brand that theoretical spot in our
atmosphere with an unequivocal X -
the innocent & pacified collaborators
who coaxed the flies into your mouth
