On Catching The Chupacabra Blues

 

                      I would go to California.

I would write a brittle hymn.

           Down three dark alleys,
           rain in the rain-

           is used up, Summer

           Pastoral—

Morningside Blues

 

One street

           light of my rose-
           -white

           darkness, 6A

           M: burying

           trees

Bathhouse of the Winds

 

Spiral staircase
to

a few
more daylights,

isnít so much to
ask
