EVERYTIME THE DOGS BARK

John Cale read it to me

about the time I was in protest

and everyone was eating burgers

and I was the Arfy among them

It took no longer than an instant

to disappear without trace

in crowds of hungry minors

who knew it was hot and be scared

of men in blue uniforms

who backed their threat with tastes

of mule and leopardskin slippers

and wasted time on the work

of the dealer on the stand.
