like a donkey's smarter than I am
by J. D. Nelson
burning a stone
isn't as easy
as those vampires
on TV make it seem.

I tried all night
& all I got
was a pile of
burnt matches
& a house
reeking of sulphur.

stones don't want to burn.

some donkey told me
I was doing it incorrectly --

what does he know?

like donkeys invented fire!

huh! I'd laugh but
this damn sulphur
stench is giving me
a head-ache.
