Anxiety of Issuance


By Harry Streisand

I text my brother and ask him if he will paint a colonel in oils,
he says no and I promise to pay him with secrets.

Angry screeching – mellifluous – my brother is a mighty songbird,
a fact I should have mentioned earlier.

Dennis the Menace invented calculus on the same day as Leibniz,
a scene my brother paints – daily – in trademark ruby grease.

In the words of Harold Bloom:
‘all reasons for Shakespeare’s eternal popularity are correct’.
