It's Not Enough of Elvis by Paul Fericano

It’s Not Enough of Elvis

“we dig up the grave
and sell little envelopes of Elvis plots
we pulverize the casket
and market little vials of Elvis coffins
we auction off the corpse
and sell every last bone to the highest bidder”

Fericano gives us one hell of a poem for 25 cents in a hand held
3”x5” chapbook. like the dust being sold, as Elvis’s testicles
lay limp on some fan’s hand. you gotta love this guy for writing
about, “enough is enough.”
