No ugly things, for Dinah P.

There is a hymn called
“I Love All Beauteous Things.”
I disagree.
What about
hagfish
wolf spiders
marabou storks
and
most humans?

I love all things that manage
to emerge from the ruckus
of evolution
of that fateful race of sperm to egg
of the petty bigotry of mass media.

And while the tritone
has found respectability,
the lowly blobfish
remains a face only a mother could love.

Which is a start, and no small thing.
