BIG TIME STUFF

like what I write
deserves the prominence
it unfailingly receives
from the local brain police
just canít help it
if Iím so
fuckin subversive
 

the question is

why do I no longer
know what to
ask for
and why
and from whom
 
and the answer is†††††††††††††††††† HUH?
 
 

Well What A Talent

they will find here someday
when they dig through the ruins
of this hotel and stumble on
the genizah in room #319
 
big bucks for someone
in the next century or two
just donít come looking around
for me any more because Iíll be gone
 
gone at last to visit French Guiana
