Heat Rash - Robert Beveridge

The cult leader down the street

invites me yet again to a meeting.

“Sorry”, I said, “gotta take

the aardvarks for their disk walk.”

I change the animal every time,

but I don’t think he notices.

Once I asked him for some

literature on their beliefs; I was

gifted with a phone book,

three pamphlets, and a finger-

smeared copy of Hollywood

Rat Race with a name and date

scrawled on the inside cover,

too faded to read except

“ er f ly,

ug 7 “.


Bio:
