Super Predator
(for Rickey Ray Rector)

The pecan pie waits for later,
half headed joke or strangled hope
who remembers now?

Never mind, never mind.

There's a special place in hell
for those ingrates and the awkward,
who wonder,
and will not avert from
the trail of women slandered.

Never mind, never mind.

But, look to the fragrant future,
what difference does it make
and help the fragrant leader
to find your vein.
