someone out there can write about him better than me ( three poems for Catfish Mcdaris )

Catfish McDaris

“ Being printed with Bukowski and Micheline never hurt, but it sure never put a dime in my pocket “

if Robert Crumb ever got
into the story boards behind all
those Saturday Morning Cartoon Specials
and wrote some nasty shit then
you got yourself a glimpse
of the man…

but the only ones who would ever get to agree
with this are the same ones
who probably knew about this already.

such is the story of small time press.

 

 

i tell you this

you’ll
join
‘em
too
&
you
be
dancin’
around
the
blinding
spotlight.

enjoying
your
last
laugh
after
a
long
wait
on
the
damn
fucking
line.

most
of
the
greats
are
dead,
that’s
the
way
it
is,
man.

i
want
you
here
when
it
happens.

 

 

art – begets – reality rag

there’s a sex joke i know which
tells about a man who came
to the city and crossed paths w/ a
hooker who asked him for sex;
inside the cheap hotel, the hooker
got hot and obliged the man for a 69
but gave up & quit when the hooker
let out a stink right on his face &
the man in a raised voice sayin’ he
wouldn’t be able to take the next 68.

this shit happened to me —-

except i was on top and there was
a bit of turd that came out and the
hooker almost punched me in the face
& went out screaming clutching her
bra on her left hand and running back to
her pimp. my ass almost got kicked by
a bunch of thugs waiting outside hoping
to get some piece of the action. I doubled
her pay and gave her motherfucking
pimp a 100 peso in order to save face.
