Tips for Moving to a New Country

Fear the fuzzy flames

and calling whatever it is

It. Dip your hair in

wine and dive into the

bush, run off the lead

of castration, take a

pronounceable name and

enter the palace when it’s free.

You can’t get to Rome

by any road, but you can

still feel the panorama, pass

through the aluminum swirls,

spray paint the mime and overcome

the scare tactics of success.
