Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas!
  You really are beautiful! Pearls,
  harmonicas, jujubes, aspirins! all
  the stuff they’ve always talked about
 
  still makes a poem a surprise!
  These things are with us every day
  even on beachheads and biers. They
  do have meaning. They’re strong as rocks.
