Trio No. 30

Charles Bukowski,
I cannot revere you
For you are all humanness
And no humanity.

Mark Kozolek,
I cannot respect you
For you are all words
And no heart.

As for myself,
I must reflect
That I am all myself
And know not your hurt.

Oak alone and basement afraid I grew from a child to a taller child to a person who can still cry at the news of the death of an ancient acquaintance.

A list of objects and compound objects:

A vat. 

A car full of newspapers. 

Three rats. 

Four rats. 

Scrap metal. 


A fiery ring. 

An empty vase. 

A beer can tab. 

A golden retriever's tattered collar. 

A sponge.
