Plank

I’ll be reading tonight @ Café Mezzaluna on 212 Saugerties 7pm. C’mon down.

Here’s a new one to piqué your interest.

 

Plank 

Is the brain a pre-existing illness

or are you just always fucked up

and on the verge of remedy?

 

That’s one of my last three questions

granted by the warden. That,

and I’d like to know

who set these blood vicissitudes

to prey on our dispositions?

 

Finally, and this should come

as no surprise

to anyone in town

who reads my odometer,

I’d like to know why we take this shit

lying down when we have the numbers to stand

taller than their dollar, taller than their guns,

taller than their armies paid by our labor’s crest?

Why do we cower and buy their TV

hoping to see ourselves on the screen?
