Carrie and I have some important things to tell you.

Tartar Sauce

Richard Brautigan
made it punctuation:
Mayonnaise.

And the malaise
of an early palate
could only be crisped
by pickles;

we didn’t all
tell our parents
what we liked to eat;

some of us
made faces
out of our lingue-d
palatial ideas
of our ideals:

food
was our first
taste of life --
what life means
-- could be easily
defined: I like this,
I like this,

I don’t like
tartar sauce
as much as I once
liked it.

AND I can magically call forth Bad Company jams with my fingertips.

The chapbook Maureen and I wrote together made this list.
