Acrostic the Universe

What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?

 

For me it is the mummies of mayflies on porch light shades

or the loamy stench of rain-soaked summer roads.

Really, it can be something simple as

the humid humping croaking of treefrogs.

You ask me, time and again, to divine for you

these answers. Look about you! The sun droops low in

wintry laziness. It hangs, sallow and fat, like the balls

of some oversexed and underburdened bull.
