If you want to read this poem in it's hilarious entirety as well as my personal fav of Steve's,"She Had The Jugs" it comes from his book of short stories called "Cruel Shoes".Read it online @ this url: http://www4.ncsu.edu:8030/~cwbosken/cruel.html

http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/writing/johnl.html John Lillison. heh heh. So good. So damn good. Every once in a while Pointy Birds or Dillon's Grove pop into my head, usually in a public place, and I bust out laughing like an idiot, or look stupider trying to hold it back. I forgot how sublime the backstory to the poem actually is... The address above is off some guys web page and he has the whole thing written down... Steve Martin above, and his own interesting legal disclaimer below...

Do we know for sure that the poem is really this short? Wishful thinking: I would love it if the poem went on and on for pages...
