GOAT IS SHOT INADVERTENTLY [30]

GOAT IS SHOT INADVERTENTLY

The theater was crowded and hot.
The movie is about war and the
nature of man.

One of the actors
gets over-excited and sprays
the audience with bullets. This,

Goat thinks, bleeding, is what
we can expect. He throws soda
in the soldier’s eyes, cracks

his skull with a kick, becomes
two dimensional.

GOAT IS SQUASHED BY SPUTNIK [29]

GOAT IS SQUASHED BY SPUTNIK

Goat was throwing rocks
at the man in the moon
who kept smiling and
waving and then once
he pointed
and Goat
looked up: Sputnik,
dropping in flames,
enveloped the hill,
Goat laughing.
