A Cure For The Blues, Maurice Oliver

And I knew the perfect remedies:

-Any ingredient found in the falsetto of Buddhism.

-Night air, in a doctor’s prescription for the tropics.

-Papery thin snores of a sleeping park bench.

-Red rash, vacationing in certain harsh detergents.

-All bits of Bach in the soup bowl of ear candy.

-Every skillet with drawers of smelling salt.

-Lemon or garlic wrapped in uncharted archipelagos.

-Footprints, when they can be peeled like a banana.

-Identical mannequins in the auction of spare parts.

-And purgatory, especially when wearing a paisley scarf.
