I suspect / there is much in the way of debauchery / on the night's last local, / thumbing through dirty / movies. Who am I? / I am nothing in the way of authority, but these abandoned hotels / are the model of / luxury // Hey baby, / I once knew a poet / who wrote all day / and gutted fish at night. Well I suspect / he had much in the way / of psychology--in bus stations and Screamin' Jay Hawkins // You and I do balance / on the soft, welcome weight / of our home; all the open-mouthed wonder / of the road // All I see is the dead shark / in the dunes, on the local, / sixteen minute late. / Well I suspect there is much / irresponsibility in a hunter's hesitation / and uncertainty


from Old Black on the Elk, released October 2, 2015
