Word Whored

Poetry

~after William S. Burroughs, for the Poetry Police

The American cemetery is nothing
but coffee and blood,
drug addicts and info addicts
pouring their mucus membranes
full of battery acid for kicks,
sick yellow ghosts
caught in balloons
and tubes tethered to the sun.

Keep My Shoes Filled

Photo of a pair of white feet on an orange blanket. The left foot has a tattoo of a Mandarin duck among some reeds, mostly done in blue. The right foot has a tattoo of a lake and more reeds. There is a bookcase full of books in the background.
