no! look, these are so ugly
chicken and shrimp curry


I loved hearing stories about
when everything was


I didn’t go overboard on
portions nor fish

I was in the best shape
of my life

p.s. people get ready
and do some blog

a rather good-looking chap
wearing a fetching silk scarf

he prayed just before going onstage
and said apologetically in English

“it was a gorgeous red, that scarf”
actually wrapped around your neck and

dressed in a tiara and navy evening gown
sauntering over to the Wurlitzer

your arms while you danced and
my loose ends popped out on my head

malaise toupees

enough volume
to blow me off

the lightning
the film stock
in their polyester


malaise toupees
& the nipple-suckling &


p.s. I wanted
a Santa Clause movie

Swish! Went the scarf as he sauntered off,

the coat held between clenched fingers,

paper sack of fruit and books splitting with each step.

He has to pay bills, including alimony, tonight,

moonlight and roses after.

It's hard to be behind the

longball on that one.

Turn tail or

don't be late.

I was wearing two

sweaters and a jacket

made out of hate.

it wants to be seen

move rocks and

turn deer on

various investigators

have suggested

starting btwn the

hind legs

keeping just one hop ahead

of the skin of the hind rocks

a cross between a tiny horse

and a small deer keeping

just one hop in the swamp
Repetition of words: is this effect
a mantra, a refrain
or a temporal loop? Sometimes
it's hard to tell.

In any case it's soothing and provides
operatic thunder.

Survival is a matter of
opinion I guess.

There's a point where a late
night is an early day--am

I there yet. Am
I repeating everything

that's already repeated.
The waitress stabbed me
but I survived.

When do repetitions
become redundant?

that’s a pretty clever interpretation
of a classic poem

several years ago when I heard you
were making a classic poem

reading lawyer fiction might require
several different strategies

but I cannot start a poem on a
crummy redneck shack

to use a bigger screen is a delightful
and extremeley droll classic poem
