What's Next

I’m not usually this angry,
six inches of my knee
extended to six feet,
the way underpants really are.

10 useful objects
no one should be
without when traveling.
They went directly
to my hands. Owh!
One eye is enough.

Things pass by in the night,
five hands one finger.
And they brought smallpox.
Hug me. Me carry my head
on my home on my head.
