Page 34--Acrasial--David Kowalcyzk

This word is
not only rude,
but ugly.
Its face is
a rank obscenity.

It has the eyes
of a famished ferret.
Its heart lives
in its throat.
It has a
Lee Harvey Oswald

Its voice is like
diluted lemonade,
weak and sickly.
It has a plywood soul
and hair like corn silk.
Its mouth is ragged
and untamed.

Its mother is Xantippe.
Its father is Sisyphus.
It was born in Bogota, Columbia.
