Snowball by Jon Bennett

The poet laureate of Martha’s Vineyard
writes about snowflakes and egrets
I can’t get her drift
I try to get it
but when I leave my house
instead of snow I see
soot black windows and
people falling from them
I’ll never make it to Martha’s Vineyard
to me a snowball is when
a girl spits cum
in your mouth
and egrets are simply
white birds.
