I’ll leave this open to interpretation; just observing that rich found artifacts plus some googling plus a bit of subjectivity might be a good starting point if you’re ever creatively stuck.

on saturday morning in the land of sunshine
where rows of stately royal palms line biscayne boulevard,

and stayed at a motel
with a private pool
they liked better than the ocean.
mildred complained about jury duty
and bunny wondered what was between venezuela and russia.
i hope you are feeling better by this time.

back in ohio
suddenly and mechanically obliterated
mildred repeated —
