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

                                                    finally

                                 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
