As passed the cortege through the underpass
(its portico a scalar mural past-
oral and blenched) the mirrors shaded vit-
rified fantods while Az to Bel complained
of hydrocele as Bel inguinal aimed
the shells from gravel. Gravid possums birthed
by tires, guttered, dipteran; just noon
the flume now photic, lambent; firmament
balloon sunblack; a highway advert shell-
acked; Fridayhappy men: the beach arcade;
the quarters drilled; a hackysack of pills;
the tourists dunned; the floats at Benny Frank’s
adjacent drugstore spiked; that night atop
a tumulus a bottlerocket cake.
