Dee Wee By Wayne F. Burke

the plumber fixed the sink
plugged with the life
I live
here
on Planet Crouton,
in an a.p.t.
with the shades drawn
and door locked
on the second floor
of a house
on a back street
in a town
people avoid
and so should you
unless you want to look me up
I am in the phone book
"Wayne F." not
"Wayne P."
who is some other jerk
got a Dee Wee
recently
reported by the newspaper
and the dopes at work
thought it was


me.
