How U b?
.I b well enough.
work’s fairly regular— ’bout 4-5 hours a day at regular pay,
plus a couple of side jobs drawing, lucky to have work
keep my hand in the writing game: blogs, two local paper gigs
shooting my mouth off at greedy vampire windmills sucking global blood
working at finishing the room downstairs under the kitchen
have not been writing poems though, ‘cept this —it comes it goes
breath flows till it won’t:
interesting set of circumstances without comprehensible explanation
mysterious as sunlight flooding somewhere
lifting us on swells of gravity
it rose again today!
happy and light bouncing off glittering frost bright and beautifuller
than any precious metal a commodities speculator might hoard
grass beneath more verdant and moist than the greenest suck of banker’s air
crisper than a fresh thousand dollar bill, as breathable as necessary,
almost fine almost sweet
