Blank Black

Blank Black


Black death blank turquoise black

In the corner he would not consume 12

Nymphs they are immortal adored on the

Cover of Vogue Magazine how could he?

The blender full

Of the inconsequential women now

I love them, too, in their show-horse

Platform shoes first prize I am done, I am done

A lonely king, like Lear, one Japanese samurai warlord

Sword stuck like pecans in my gulliver

66, the number of Harvard Delmore Schwartz’ words the

28 women naked bathing for saint men under 40

Bedraggled for love with their Nikon cameras

On the shores of Istanbul or Tanzania
