Astronomics by William C. Blome

Unable to get the mammoth-breasted girl
at the outside mall lifted out of sight
or out of mind—her after-dinner-mint taste
and a bra strap so royally wide
I’m putting together a coronation later on
for all such nighttime queens of astronomics—
yet she’s not so drop-dead delicious
as to keep me from saying “Hi, hi, hi”
to pal Orion and his big red head overhead,
and from viewing the many female constellations
who have had a go at loosening the great
and bright-notched belt and pulling every which
way imaginable on the private stars within.
