Poetry


Work It
Adam Strauss

For Harryette Mullen
         Louis Zukofsky

Work horses are often good.  Work horses
Don't have hearts of gold; if they did they'd be dead.

Horses fuel their power
Chomping trimmings from

Winy whippets who switch to whinnies when they run
Into shakers who can move their careers.

At a farm owned by a sheikh
A yearling shits on a platinum ingot;

Exemplary Eurotrash
Snaps a shot with his cell-phone;

Days later he texts that highlight
To a stud in Hawaii.
