Two Poems by Jonathan Hayes: The Boob Tube and The Bellybutton
by Jonathan Hayes
The Boob Tube

shows the dictator
sentenced to be hung,
the baseball manager
leaving town and
going to another


The weather report
of more rain coming soon,
and then the electric socket

goes out
in your room.

The Bellybutton

is cleaner than the nose,
for only once a year
do you have to

pick out
all the cotton
you wore.
