Large

Living large confuses me
It seems so sleeping rough
So writing big to use the paper fast
…The lines the bass player laying down
The drummer bent on blind anticipating…
Every August, already going back to school
.
Living large as Livingston in the Congo
Swatting biters that he hoped were flies
A jungle jumble sale of rusty rivets
Recovered from a bone-dry riverbed
Analysis: Is that blood handwriting?
Why do crocodiles have so white teeth?
.
Living largely in a picture book
Words in different languages on the spine
Grinding seashells into sleeping powder
Stopping ears with little bitty hedeghogs
Who need the warmth so much they don’t complain
.
Living large, the Key Largo pirogue sunk
The Cuban blockade broke and up for sale
…The lines the bass player laying down
The drummer bent on blind anticipating…
The beltway runs to Sanibel and back
But no one sees it underneath the waves
