"To tell you the truth, I'm pretty burned out
on meat poetry or street poetry or poetry of
the down-and-out, whatever you want to call
it, because so much of it is bullshit; either bogus
motherfuckers who never shed blood but
insinuate themselves into the lives of those
who have and then make a name for themselves
by writing generic imitations, or a bunch of
middle-class kids still living at home talking
tough, aping Bukowski, Wantling, levy, Micheline...
but HAPPY HOUR is the real thing. Stark precision.
It's stripped down, bare bones authentic.
You be the real McCoy, amigo..."

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say,
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

-EMILY DICKINSON




I have a lot of friends. I have all kinds of children
yet I have no one to speak to

extinct statistic much grimmer than

old books




Listless disorder.




Linguists believe 3,400 to 6,120 languages

could become extinct by 2100, a statistic

much grimmer than the common estimate

of about one language death every two weeks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

why not me pretending it doesn't hurt not a whisper

unintended




That languages die.

numb headlines the artist's headlines
frown grimmer than estimated frown grimmer
my lost skull considered at risk at risk
from the lost book of cultural lost book
diversity father the why not me diversity




every cloud has a silver lining

he who hesitates is lost

happy families are all alike

two hearts that beat as one

ships that pass in the night



demolition woman?

can I be your man?


"now it's all as useless as repeating a dream"

at the yard sale
