Joe Smokes a Fag On the Beach


grabbed a handful of sand

and let it rush through my fingers
like you curl your lip. They’re
in the front pocket. Out

they come.

Pack it Joe, against
your lighter, and raise
that right eyebrow.
Flash! Whew! You’re
hip now and GOD himself
knows it. Trendy, some
might say. Groovy. Nifty.
That butt hangs strategically
out the corner of your mouth.
Raise the eyebrow again,
Joe! Suck it in. Blow it
in our faces. Toss the
red hot butt in a trash can
full of toilet paper. Walk away
happy, Joe. Finnigans Wake

was in my fist and I

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
