If You See This Man.


By Thomas Lux

Notify someone of authority
if you see this man:

He has a fish hook
in his upper lip.
He usually carries a bleeding starfish
in a Dixie cup.
He is an excellent fork-lift
operator and is known
to play dice with nuns.
He is big.
He claims to detest golf coaches.

We want him for the robbery
of the first kiss ever given
to a bus driver’s sickly daughter.

And remember he is ruthless.
If he knew you had read this
he would murder you.
