The Twelfth Day

I'm heading to the beach to sit around in the sun for Easter.  Then I'll enjoy something with ham.

From Zachery Schomburg's The Man Suit (Black Ocean, 2007): 

Experiment in Invisibility

Today I held two bananas
over each of my shoulders

and presented myself
as a quotation.

I've been a cry for help mostly,
sometimes a joke.

When you stirred from 
your sleep you wanted breakfast

but I was too late.
I had become the urgent

prayers of a desperate pilot.
I had become a marriage

proposal blown by a strong arctic
wind across Lake Ontario.
