Peasant Rebellions

  1. We would, but we
  2. can’t. Lords
  3. scratch our cheeks. From
  4. the awning came
  5. a symbolic mother and played
  6. bowls. The black parquet.
  7. Parquet is always made of
  8. wood. With leavened
  9. dingleberries I clogged the thunderous wall.
  10. Nothing special. Manet died
  11. relatively young. In Warsaw we
  12. ate pine nuts. People
  13. stare into simple things and
  14. I’m simple.
