For Elmer;

High Pile by Jaguart


Oh, I have slippered the surly bonds of shag,

And danced with Dupont on laughter-twisted tuffs;

Earthwards I’ve rolled and joined the tumbling mirth

Of indoor-outdoor turf – and done a thousand things

You have not dreamed of - vacuumed, napped and shimmered

Bathed in a tapestry of new-smell flooring. Lying there,

I’ve chased the wavy knap along and crawled

My infant self through footless colored textures,

Down, down the lush delirious berber beige

I’ve wrestled the burning-rug remnants with easy grace,

Where never a spill, or even stain, set

And, while with silent, warming mind I’ve trod

The low untrespassed sanctity of roomspace,

Removed my shoes, and was massaged by God.

I remember when nostalgia was cool, before it was appropriated by VH-1's I-love-five-seconds-ago, tired Family Guy jokes which as South Park pointed out the Simpsons happened to do first, and oh yeah, Norman Rockwell. Those were the days. Salad, halcyon type goodness. On second thought, maybe nostalgia never was what it used to be...
