Can You Tell Us Something About Him?
Well, he can sell the whole dog, the long, the short
with all its parts, nothing missing, sliced and chunked.
The bole, the bulk, the stem, the stalk, the hulk.
Canned chili, farm machinery, mixed nuts, insect spray,
frozen gourmet stuff. Carries a styro cooler and stash
of lucky clubs in the trunk. Has on occasion aced
a player of great repute. No doubt likes the booze.
Ate a lamb’s eye once. Knows all the words to Dark Town
Poker Club by heart. Damn smart. Good joke teller,
sometimes land speculator. Not much for blood sports.
