pillows you dream on

please don’t send me
any more pillows
that you dream on.
especially not C.O.D.

as it is, the house and car
are full up with pillows,
in fact, it’s getting hard
to make a right turn.

if you send more pillows
i’ll have to rent
a storage space. anyway,
i think i’m being watched.

and better they stay
where they oughter.

one morning
laughing together
on my back porch.

off to see James in the morning
when on a walk toward the tram
Mirella passes and says an eclipse will be
in five minutes by her watch

i suggest there will not be much change
as she went eyes skyward upon her way
when two minutes later from
the opposite direction came her husband

and i told Roberto good
day there will be an eclipse
in a moment but do not
expect much change

i will mention the eclipse then
to James when
i see him
and ask then if he noticed
