Sirius or Capella

Fresh mint is nothing
but clusters of stars,
and a screwed top jar
measures the limit of
man’s contemplation.

Just slice the goat’s
cheese and a single
galaxy has divided.

Decorate the region
of the sky with berries,
and blend all the con
fusion which still exists.

Gently fold into the
sweetcorn the
emissions generated,
the mango mixture
of brilliant vindication.
