Here’s the first section of the piece on which I’m currently working, DIGRESSION: LINES FOR LENNIE TRISTANO. Hope you find it interesting and worthwhile.


                                      more lime,   more calcium

                         build-up   in  the  pipes

               so less water pressure



number-pieces of acorn

                   & sparrow,     of brake-squeal

& trash pick-up,     of metal transmission-shop overhead doors

          & car-stereo-bass-blur



       those who’ve been domesticated

              now set “free”     by their masters

                     to love        to work          to suffer

                               to starve                  and


                                 to swallow the hook







between the airforce base and the interstate

between one’s first drink and one’s final meal

between what’s remembered and what’s anticipated
