It appears that certain people think that poetry should be a certain way. For these, there will be nothing but troubled years. More and more people will come along to break their concepts. It's hard I know, like having somebody fuck your wife while you are at work, but life, as they say, goes on.

relentless as the tarantula
the new place
on going out to get the mail
Shot of Red-Eye
cows in Art Class
A Close Call While Shopping
the riots
a smile to remember
back to the machine gun
Carson McCullers
congrats, Chinaski
me and Faulkner
gamblers all
having the flu and with nothing else to do
two kinds of hell
hello, how are you?
here i am...
it was just a little while ago
the great lover
magical mystery tour
what makes?
one thirty-six a.m.
three oranges
rhyming poem:
the schoolyard of forever
small conversation in the afternoon with John Fante
the crunch
the lucky ones
the house
what can we do?
