Dear Salvation Army

You can have the goat
I got for reading my poems
in Willits.
He has balded my yard.

Now he’s grazing my books,
The bible from when I was baptized
is his favorite so far.
He is a brindle-colored goat

and under other circumstances
a fine reward for a reading.
The poet before me
got fish.

Please arrange pick up very soon.
I am okay with losing Leviticus;
would like to save Mark
and Ruth.
