TOOTHBRUSHMy space-age toothbrush bobs in and out my skullas though it were painting the Sistine Chapelor the dark walls of Altamira or Lascaux.Tiny geological eon-flakes fall away:Many Leakeys come running: Richard and Maryfondle my molars, incisors, bicuspids.My toothbrush erases all I have saidtoday and everyday, through all my history back to the days of William of the Cradle.I erase the wicked and the good of my speechuntil I am paid in full with Universe.-1 + 1 = 0There is no Heaven, no Hell.I am trying to remove the painted image of the Sorceror from the cleft in my upper palate.He is so happy in the darkness of my mouth,curled-up, half-moon of a man bent on his flutewhich is almost touching his belly,as he was in the Cave of Les Trois Freres.On the veldt, I see the antelopes we stalked:through my lips I see the lithe forms(painted as if by Franz Marcbehind my sexy uvula).The delicate sculptured antelopechew with rubberized lipsyellow grasses leaning this way and that.in winds which seem to come down from the Sun itself.Plato appears too and makes shadows with his fingerson the inside of my cheeks, the forms of creatures.Plato fondles the bristles of my toothbrush sometimes,
