The Way It Was

                 That's the way it was with Bummy Davis. The night Bummy fought Fritzie Zivic in the Garden and Fritzie started giving him the business and Bummy hit Zivic low maybe thirty times and kicked the referee, they wanted to hang him for it.

My Dark Pages

                   Dead people belong to the live people who claim them most obsessively.

They Told Me

                           And then they told me i could be somebody
                           If i didn't let too much get in my way
                           And i tried so hard just to be myself
                           But i keep on fading away
                           Until the lights went out, i didn't know what to do
                           If i could fool myself then maybe i'd fool you too

I Stood Outside

             It was a warm day, almost the end of March, and i stood outside the barber shop looking up at the jutting neon sign of a second floor dine and dice emporium called Florian's. A man was looking up at the sign too. He was looking up at the dusty windows with a sort of ecstatic fixity of expression, like a hunky immigrant catching his first sight of the Statue of Liberty. He was a big man but not more than six foot five inches tall and not wider than a beer truck.

Something He Can Do

         It's not something he can do anything about, being a bleeder, anymore than a guy with a glass jaw can do something about not having whiskers.

Fragments in Kodachrome

Sound of the Light

                                  Again the unbroken rumble of trucks and the hiss
                                  of brakes roll upward out of the avenue
                                  I forget what season they are exploding through
                                  What year the drill on the sidewalk is smashing
