i'm gonna pay someone
to sculpt my face and head
and used it for a mold
for a mannequin
with a little bit of hair
with moving eyes
and mouth
and a few buttons
for saying in my voice
"you're right"
"uh huh"
"that's great"

the head
won't have to be sophisticated
something like that cheap 
halloween store shit
ought to be good enough

then i'll copy the head
and give it as a gift
this christmas
that way
for all those who say
"we never see you enough"
that head
and all it says
ought to be plenty
and quite satisfying
since all it says
is about all we ever say
and it'll be there
for their delight
every second
of every minute
of every hour
of every day..........
