Poem Goes to University 3

                       for Earson

a portable podium, he said
that's what we need, disembodied

the carnival pretends when
the chaos is already circling your big top

transition is everything, the shift
between seeing and decoding the show

the speech he made was a trifle, disorganizing
and sharp, a disruption of the office mail

all the while thinking of the number of inappropriate
things I could do right now
