from the abandoned poems file . . .

Moving Through Him

Perched on the throne
early mid-morning hoping
for a good loaf — dithering
between pages of Sartre’s Being
and Nothingness
, Schultz’s
Who Do You Think You
Are, Charlie Brown?
He imagines
instead Rodin’s chin-fisted
Thinker: Oh — how he
shapes his next
thought.

lol. that first line just cracked me up. I think this poem is really funny. I tend to read WCW, Hart Crane, and Star magazine.

I'll have to try Sartre . . .
