The Robin Hood of the Isle of Dogs

(22 August 2011)

so here comes incunabula
on the itunes with a beat
and you are probably deep down inside a reptile with hairy pits
or else this is just a mind in meditation without tranquility
i’m thinking of fajitas and timed meats and how things
come to the table still steaming
Jonty Tiplady has a bonk and I have a bonk and Tim Atkins has a bonk
and Jeff Hilson is the robin hood of isle of dogs or used to be now he is
an isle of splushies fingering the coleslaw of my aching heart
so we know surrealism and we know how it feels to pare the fingernails
while watching the latest hit documentary on the BBC
while the rain moves into London and then out again
and this is your house so make use of it
and this is not the hot pants of hot mammas in the cheeryblossoms
of zen indie Japan
but it is where i want to go now that i am here
to Osaka’s swollen buildings with a sake for me and sake for you
and nuts in the bowls we call fingerfoods or complimentary
am i complimentary
are you
Ted Berrigan is a man i never knew except thru the words
and that is my very own private Ted Berrigan
and I like him very much
Kenneth Koch ditto
Philip Whalen ditto
Bernadette Mayer ditto
there are the living ones (mentioned above)
and then there is me multiple like all of you
do i think i have an audience for this
of course
somewhere in this universe or the next
but now I’m not even talking about words
its time to find the rain
