"sifting through the madness for the Word, the line, the way ..."


"But in contentment

I still feel

the need for some

imperishable bliss..."

-Wallace Stevens

'fair stand the fields of France'

in the awesome strumming of no


I can never get too high

in places where giraffes run like


I can never get too lonely

in bars where celluloid bartenders

serve poisoned laughter

I can never get too drunk

at the bottom of the mountains

where suicides flow into the streams

I smile better than the Mona Lisa

high lonely drunken grin of grief

I love you.
