Sign of the Good Eye
Took a while, but I finally found someone
who would do it, who would make
a homemade sign for outside my door
that reads no war or violence permitted in life
which is the first sign that came to my mind
after the no solicitors sign we’d ordered came in.
Since that sign we asked for worked so well,
I figured it was worth a try to see how strong
a sign can be. How potent. Magical, even.
The next sign will say no speeding at all ever
anywhere in the world and I’ll mount it right
below the other several signs by my door. The change we want to see: two inches by
six inches of black plastic and mountable
with double-sided tape. Tape that clings firmly,
like I have been doing to some little hope.
Dollar bills keep pouring out
of the kitchen faucet every time
I go to fill the sink for dishes
or to fill up the water bowl for the cat
and concerned a bit I sure am right now
because not only there should be water
