NATURE BOY



Eden lived below the L
feet toward LYWOOD
HO cupped sleeping head
composed Nature Boy peeling
lemons in the canyon

broadway Peg jumped off the H
tourists skip Arroyo Seco
man with two stuffed tigers shakes tarp roars
makes joggers nervous

How can you spend so much time in your car?
They don’t care if Moby lives here
Montreal freezes tears to the jawline
No one in LA cries in public

I once sat beside Justin Bieber at a restaurant
his date looked bored
mid spaghetti pulls up hood
brown and grey plumage eclipses face
he looks like a giant donut
an owl enamoured with its own reflection

Dad’s stories revving from lips
a motor chased us out the door dazed
long winded tone of ocean
like a Bobby Vinton song
all the lonely men of California


 

Sari Lightman is a writer and musician. She plays in the band Tasseomancy.
