Trio No. 30

1.

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. 


2.

Stony lonesome and basement afraid as 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.


3.

A list of objects and compound objects:


A vat. 


A car full of newspapers. 


Three rats. 


Four rats. 


Scrap metal. 


Malt. 


A fiery ring. 


An empty vase. 


A beer can tab. 


A golden retriever's tattered collar. 


A sponge.
