     coupons
     by Charles Bukowski

     cigarettes wetted with beer from
     the night before
     you light one
     gag
     open the door for air
     and on your doorstep
     is a dead sparrow
     his head and breast
     chewed away.

     hanging from the doorknob
     is an ad from the All American
     Burger
     consisting of several coupons
     which
     say
     that with the purchase
     of a burger
     from Feb. 12 thru Feb. 15
     you can get a free
     regular size bag of french
     fries and one
     10 oz. cup of coca cola.

     I take the ad
     wrap the sparrow
     carry him to the trash bin
     and dump him
     in.

     look:
     forsaking fries and coke
     to help keep
     my city
     clean.
