I want my beard
To be as long as
A road,
As long as fifteen busses
Lined up side by side
To jump over.
How long? As long
As your arm,
Ten feet long.
I want it to be
A truck.
I want it to
Run over your eyes.
I want it so long
You can’t resist.
I want it back with
Just a few rough places,
Veined with grey.
I want my beard
To carry your load, hoe
A field, tow
A barge.
Let my beard go
Home with you.
