Bozo Sapphics by Cody Walker

Bozo, Toe to Toe

Tilt the glass: the terrorist turns to freedom
Fighter. Likewise, clowns, in the funhouse mirror,
Stand as kings. Self-interested theories on which
Bozo calls bull****.

Bozos Imbroglio

Showmen, offered tenderness, tend to take it.
Husbands know this. Tickle a clown: does he not
Laugh? Then why subpoena him, why inflict more
Pricks on this Bozo?

Bozo, Woe

Bozos six apologies, five excuses,
Four rebuffs, and three switcheroos are met by
Two deaf ears. Behaviorists gather, call this
First-order clowning.


Scarves, of ample length, that are brightly dyed and
Chiefly worn by Mexican women. Not a
Further Bozo. Not an attempt at cloning.
Shudder to think it.

Bozo, Quid Pro Quo

Names, he knows. Our Bozo can cough up names till
Cows croak. Ask for names in return, however . . .
Same-old same-old: Bundle (in Old High German),
Big Mouth (in Latin).

Bozo Utters a Bon Mot

Asked about increasingly vitriolic
Spats regarding Comedys tragic center,
Bozo cries, Ridiculous quibberdicking!
HA ha ha. [Weeping.]

Bozo, Incognito

Hes the older guy in the hat. Or waitthe
Latin fellow (cane and corsage) about to
Pay his tab. Or Bartender Joe. Good Jesus!
Everywhere: Bozo.
