glass bottles in the window

 

who could’ve told me?
who could’ve just sat me down
and explained?
 

that blue glass was
oxygen and cobalt
and sand
 
that angel light was
electromagnetic
radiation
 
but —
the hound dog always barked
at nothing
his pitiful howls
lingering
like that catfish stink
after it rains
 
lord knows how hard I tried
to wash my hands
 

who could’ve told me?
who could’ve just sat me down
and explained?
