Putting a New Door In
Brians new shoes. She asked me of his
putting a new door in.
CCI. Theyre putting a new door in. Impersonating
Theyre putting a new door in. Feliz Navidada.
My watch continues
to stop: self-identity.
at 8 am
with dry lips.
take my eyes off the ball.
Papers on her head. Like a crown of spring
thorns. Theyre putting
a new door in.
This is only the third poem Ive written in 2001. And probably
last one. The other two went like
<22.500000>It hit with the farce of an atom
<22.500000>If there are no animals on Mars, is there anything
that could classify
<22.500000>People are like ciphers. They
say this, they say that.
<22.500000>Private life is a social experiment.
<22.500000>The French: an impatience with
<22.500000>Writing. Boiling potatoes.
<22.500000>Everybodys pride is hurt.
Be sure to add
these Tones of War
to your arsenal
of meters. 22.500000>22.500000>22.500000>22.500000>22.500000>22.500000>22.500000>
