North of a Good Idea

Another bad one exposes itself like a
grizzled elf peeing a chain-link fence.
Or it’s easy to imagine that same fence
electrified, containing the remains
of the poor sizzled elf. Exposed to cold
for long enough, any idea can become
a good one, or can at least come to seem
good. It’s like dirty laundry — if you
wait long enough, the stink disappears.
