Hello. Fuck Off.


a good poem must stand for everything as well as fruit


can. the apple, easy eternity. the grape dionysian

crapshoot. banana, circus pornography, not to mention the


apple. hello. fuck off. drop your cigar, your wallet,

there’s a vagina on your shoe. don’t fret, it’s non-stick, not


opposable. you don’t get the heartsick memo:

there’s stop not enough coffee stop for the alcoholics’


recoveries stop. luckily, the vending machine’s chest

is blown open, luckily, the cul-de-sac, luckily,


a cigarette truck exploded,

see the gulls ashing in the trees?
