They say fast music makes you work faster
I say it just makes you dance
and you can’t dance
not at work
not for show,
or even in the bathroom
where suddenly your cover could be blown
And the night goes on
like a relative projecting red-bomb warnings
and the headphones sing away
someone else’s lovesick heart
or blue-suede blues
and, as I’m changing the bag in the day-care diaper pail
I am only moving on duty
the kind of duty with a “t” and a “y”
the kind of duty that doesn’t feel like a gift
but an obstacle to Oblivion
and Oblivion is sexy as hell
Except that it is Hell

and open the lid
in reasonable peace, for a done day
and I see
a raccoon in the shadow of the bin,

Points its wet nose straight at my chest
and sings, in perfect tune
“Oh ignominious Night! Fold your darkness away!
Alive! Alive am I! A paranoid rodent!
Royal black stripes on greasy grey fur!
The king or the Queen of all Raccoons
For all this suburban boy knows. But more!

For who is the giver of living?
Break him, oh Beauty
banish the crown of his heart and humble it hard
On a fleeting, sad-back animal feeding
on old crackers and yogurt in trash-bags, dancing
