          zombies in the oil slick
                      keeping time
               on a glass
                                              mattress:
AIDS means love and
                              Viagra means love
                    and Wellbutrin means
          love
                                        and
                              bombs mean love
        and dogs
                                                  mean love,
                    and we are running
                      love
          for the world

and the world

                    needs love
