“Go Fetch!” (A Poem Written September 29, 2011)

All day long with
little No monkey
trying to scratch my eyes out
so I won’t see any Yes

go home little monkey.
your place is not here.
the Open won’t stop reaching
for me. She calls from
inside my chest,
singing, singing.

go little monkey.
play with your brothers
in the jungle over there.
see this? see?
