Overheard in a Used Book Store

“Poets these days are so narcissistic.”
I like staring into a still pond—even
when a bird toilets my head, I think

this message is from the universe,
from God. But God is busy staring at
a pond in another county and has to face

grumpy angels who claim they dust
Heaven’s gold streets and never,
ever get to retire.
