(After Vallejo)


I will die in Minneapolis

On a rainy day, because

It’s always raining in Minneapolis

Or snowing.


I will die in Minneapolis

I don’t know which day.

No one will laugh or cry

Because everyone’s Scandinavian.


Gary Bloom is dead!

They pummeled him with snowballs

Even though he was always nice to them.
