Heat


if something doesn't turn
up soon I’ll officially
become a monk as if
you’d notice days echo
days begging the question of
how long before I drop
like a clay pot from the ledge
screaming

sorry I missed you sorry
for nothing last night
I nearly drove my mercury off
a hill trying like a teenager
driving with his dick to be
cool gawd almighty
it’s hot & people are dying
everywhere

In Light of My Recent Birthday

I present a dark photo of myself at 19.



I know it looks as if I'm smoking, but I'm not.  In fact, it's an altogether different bad habit.  Lost in thought, I'm nibbling on the nub of my ballpoint--no doubt my lucky Papermate Slimline, glowing with the fire caused by the incredible velocity in which I wrote, perhaps immortalizing a pub napkin with one of my early poems, let's say, "Scenes from a Sonata," which appeared umpteen years later in Hunger Mountain.

Speaking of, "Scenes from a Sonata" is the opening poem in my Greatest Hits, which, last I checked, still isn't listed (for whatever reason) among the other such chapbooks at Pudding House.  However, as far as I know, you can purchase the book there.  In fact, you should purchase it--by whatever means necessary-- because the Google preview of Greatest Hits doesn't include the book in whole.  Also, the preview contains errors, most significantly a misprint of the aforementioned poem, that were corrected before the actual release of Greatest Hits, so I'm not giving a link here

Or perhaps, despite my wearing a winter coat in the above photo, I had just written "Heat."
