THE GORILLA'S EQUIPMENT - christine hamm

A catcher's mitt. A Country Cruiser with stick-on wood grain. Black wing tip shoes, polished once a week. A pile of banana leaves. An ancient leather belt, cracked along the buckle holes. Five brown glass bottles, full of Amstel. A stick, for poking at anthills, then licking the ants off of. A poor falsetto singing voice. A portable plastic record player from the 70's. A handful of fleas. WD-40, for cleaning rubber. 5 boxes of tissues. A collection of dried shit, hidden under a bed.
