BOOKS - SUNBATHING ON TYRONE POWER'S GRAVE - POEMS

 

 

Unruly Aura

The cashier at the health food store
tells me I have a beautiful aura.
Wait, I tell her, if you want to see
a really beautiful aura, wait until Iíve taken
my Renew Life, Ultimate Flora, Probiotic.
After that my aura will knock your socks off.
She smiles at me and rings me up. My money
has a beautiful aura, too.  My dollar bills
float out of my pink wallet.  The man behind me
swells from the heat I generate. Each step I take
brings me closer to God, the final, fabulous aura.
Take my hand, I tell her, squeeze my aura -Ė
itís hungry, and looking for someone to devour.
