INNUENDO

The old wire
of a
man—leaned

just
so, and
smoking pleasurably

a long
thin one on the
corner,

in front of the vine-
encrusted
limestone parlor—

knows enough
to say
nothing.

He has stood here
too many
times already

not
to
understand—

that bitter taste
is both
less

potent
and more
effective—

when a pinch-
dose of
levity is

incorporated.
That's why—
he likes

to always
makes sure—
his funeral

black—has those
pinstripes
in it.
