For Jack Collom

10 Things I do Every Day

play poker
drink beer
smoke pot
jack off
curse

BY THE WATERS OF MANHATTAN

flower

positive & negative

go home

read lunch poems

hunker down

changes

Life goes by
quite merrily
blue
NO HELP WANTED

Hunting For The Whale

“and if the weather plays me fair
I’m happy every day.”

The white that dries clear
the heart attack
the congressional medal of honor
A house in the country

NOT ENOUGH
