Hepatica by Kenneth Pobo

Picture Dusty singing
“Breakfast In Bed”
to Norma Tanega.
They touch tenderly
in places that Ed Sullivan
fears, the swingin’ sixties
a time when even famous
heads get bashed
against a wall and
careers come down
with a terrible disease
and die of truth.  Norma
puts her head on
Dusty’s chest.  The sun
has already gotten up
to make breakfast
for a hepatica blossom.
