Your Logo Glass Ode

Adam Deutsch

The highlight of your week,
only it’s not about a girl on a moon
or mountain ranges or harps.
This week’s chalice’s design
is a perfect silhouette of the Buddha,
and the other side bears the family crest
of your very blood you didn’t know existed,
the likeness of a pack of hounds
tearing apart your first pair of sneakers
stuffed to the tongue with bacon smothered
schnitzel. Run a tab while you ask
the only real question, how did they know?
How did a small pint glass muralist
in a south Texas tumbler factory know
how to capture these animals outside
the slightest tilt of the building
with your first address, staining
the cylinder window of froth, stout?
