Tom Waits Please

by Sean McPherson

Tom Waits please
Let them know I’m
A coyote not
A Golden Retriever.
Tom Waits please
Promise you won’t
Indian give me
Your Mardi Gras.
Tom Waits please
Show us where
Death and life
Form a suit’s seam.
Tom Waits please
Ask Andrew Wyeth
To stop painting
And help that lady.
Andrew Wyeth please
Give me a discount
On your hundred-buck
Book of yellow prints.
Andrew Wyeth please
Regale Dale Cooper
With your story about
The knife at the table.
David Lynch please
Never let Roy
Orbison stop
Breaking my heart.
