no natural laws
nobody knows me
except these glossy magazines,
bored book shelves, you silent corners.
i could have put you in my pocket;
i could have you drowned and strangled
on my Ministry shirt.
i could have had you Black Voices,
but instead i got you Heartbeat
i got you American Review 16
Modern Verse is still maddening in my thoughts
I had let you go In Cold Blood
I had let you go Deviant
i had to devise some new plans.
