A Boy’s Head

In it there is a space-ship
and a project
for doing away with piano
And there is
Noah’s ark,
which shall be first.
And there is
an entirely new bird
an entirely new hare
an entirely new bumble-bee.
There is a river
that flows upwards
There is a multiplication table
There is anti-matter
And it just cannot be trimmed.
I believe
that only what cannot be trimmed
is a head
There is much promise
in the circumstance
that so many people have heads.
