Girl, the worst day of my life was the day
we saw Jack Spicer get mauled to death
by escaped tigers at Candlestick Park
which they closed down forever, buried
in salt and renamed Ate which they shudder at
over in center field at the AT&T stadium.
I threw a bobblehead of Ryan Braun at the beast
which bounced off uselessly and lay on the turf.
Boy, the wind levels at AT&T Park are half
those at Candlestick, thanks to the quick thinking
of engineers from UC Davis. Kantorowicz was an engineer
too, you know. He invented a ghost of Algebal
which beat up Hitler and lived a celibate life.
Or he tried to beat up Hitler.
Or he couldn’t open doors with his claw hands.
Girl, I think I saw a movie about that.
Did one of them have a special gun
that could shoot you into the future,
so you just pop back out where you were
but your kids have goatees and your wife
is riding a jet-ski on Lake Champlain
Boy, why don’t you come on over,
help me translate Dante, Shakespeare,
and Baudelaire back out of German, where
they’ve gotten their feet tangled up and are calling
Girl, sounds good, I have no language
but am a gifted student of concepts.
You could say I never met one I didn’t like.
Even now, my hands trembling in joy—
being eaten by tigers in the baseball diamond of tomorrow.
