Random Poem:

outsourced is my poem-

resources abroad collaborate
a mexican hands a jew a vowel
in peru a shovel turns syntax
over and over until
a little lexicon heaves forth
now you're thinking pots of gold
del arco iris is rainbow in spanish
the siberian snows coat my idioms
making them cold and a little
too literal
merwin left for hawaii and
forget his punctuation on a bar napkin
in upstate new york and now
you're asking for capitalization
a question mark could be inserted
two lines up but not today in haiti
entire stanzas explode from fissures
never steal a stanza from haiti for
all poets believe in voodoo sonically
and otherwise but in japan
they're adding something to my poem
a little dry asian humor
better late than never
a jetlagged tuna
