My Catullus (Chicken and Dark Beer Shoot Out My Nostril)

Salve, nec minimo puella naso
nec bello pede nec nigris ocellis
nec longis digitis nec ore sicco
nec sane nimis elegante lingua,
decoctoris amica Formiani.
ten Provincia narrat esse bellam?
tecum Lesbia nostra comparatur?
o saeclum insapiens et infacetum!

Salving my neck's minimal nasal, ah, pollo,
my neck bellowed, my neck peed, black jelly cellos.
My long neck's digits are necks of sick ore,
but my neck is sane, U.S.S. Nimitz-elegant as a tongue
decocting amicable forms to narrate
what is essential of provincial bedlams
as teacup lespians compare nostrils, their
septums insapient eating inflection..
