Huckleberry (After Huck’s Tune)

If being is light

and time
is a sight

hang a nose on a rose
and come in

If circles get square

and blinds
lose their hare

hang a bill on a sill
and come in

If the smoke gets
so much

and my cup
has a touch

hang a cone on a stone
and come in

The shore’s gone dry

or today is
a lie

I hang a chain on a train
and get in
