CANARY IN A CLAYPOOL
(10/25/12)


he's
a very
selective
singer

we offer
him
a vast variety
of musical
selections
for encouragement

sometimes
he'll react

sometimes
not

but
every time
that we play
Primus

he accompanies
almost
without fail

he wails
along
to each
psychedelic
polka

he has
a particular
affinity
for Spaghetti Western

maybe
he flew
into a wall
at some point
in his past

maybe
the peculiarities
of his owners
have left
their imprint

maybe he's just
one
weird
little bird

but you
should really
hear
him sing

Les
would be
proud
