out of mind


out of sight he drops and the saying is delivered with the morning butchery

the weekly bill twice-monthly

let us appreciate it this kindness unto ourselves


for his is the mercy of a blessed remaindering under kind editorship

to see him home see there in the sky Mama Lamb and all her little bleats

shepherding the good past intromission of all sins before the Great Proofreader

and his scads of copy boys heeding the news

from Stuyvesant to Dutch Harbor and the Java main
