On Catching The Chupacabra Blues


                      I would go to California.

I would write a brittle hymn.

           Down three dark alleys,
           rain in the rain-

           trees, Hell
           is used up, Summer



Morningside Blues


One street

           light of my rose-

           darkness, 6A

           M: burying



Bathhouse of the Winds


Spiral staircase

a few
more daylights,

isnít so much to
