The Organ Grinder (poem)

In case you’re curious, “glandular meat” refers to animal organs…liver, brain, sweetbreads, what have you. I just like walking up to my wife and finding creative ways to work “glandular meat” into sentences.

The Organ Grinder

The organ grinder pauses
for a moment because he’s
fresh out of organs, and so
he summons Jerry the monkey
to go fetch a liver, a brain,
hell, even a fuckin’ spleen
so he can get back already
to the one thing he’s good at.
