the tour


the virgin birth let us celebrate

by all means

or any other birth

for that matter

but this hoary nation of

old schoolmarms

let us not celebrate at all


it is a good thing says the writer

in the Louvre for God’s sake

I praise it Eli


and yet if it be so foreign

as needs to be Englished for literary review

why it is folderol just the same


these are the professors

of the closed shops
