Many Kinds of Onions (Draft 1)

Many Kinds of Onions

Gin and Vermouth
a Gibson onion
a garnish of you,
onions on a steak

steamy, I’ll
wash you in the shower
make rain my sunshine

soapy dopey I don’t mind

we are both
clean and dirty

You know

There’s an onion in a Gibson
and onions on the steak

We could be careful,
and peel away the layers
and let peal the bell on
the cuckoo clock
