E. E. Cummings once said, “I’m living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart.” Once, on his way home from a party with his wife, he discovered that he didn’t have enough money for the subway. The party had been in a fancy apartment building, and they were riding in an elevator with a well-dressed gentleman of generous proportions. Cummings held his hat out in front of the man and said in a winning voice, “Sir, would you be interested in stepping on my hat?” The man looked confused, and Cummings added, “It will cost you five dollars.” The man, as in a dream, stepped obediently on the hat and paid the fee, and Cummings and his wife went home in a taxi.

So it came time

for me to cede myself

and I chose
the wind

to be delivered to

The wind was glad

and said it needed all

the body
it could get

to show its motions with

and wanted to know

willingly as I hoped it would

if it could do
something in return

to show its gratitude

When the trees of my bones

rises from the skin I said

come and whirlwinding
stroll my dust

around the plain

so I can see

how the ocotillo does

and how saguaro-wren is
and when you fall

with evening

fall with me here

where we can watch

the closing up of day
and think how morning breaks


[My love for snowglobes is immortal]

my breath was the quiet yessing/ of tall grass

the play was messy and tangible and full/ of the etceteras I am full of

A goatherd sings, slings a Kalashnikov:
the godhead mute since looters hacked it off.

Some lines from Dean Young :

the last polar bear sat
on his shrinking berg thinking
I have been vicious but my soul is pure.


Soon, my shoes will be part of the populous dirt.


I can walk by the sea holding a hand
with as much melancholy as the next fellow
