Folder: 
BARD'S SHARDS

 

Getting together with Poe on weekends

to smoke opium and drink

the wines of paradise

 

Going to New York with Poe to search

for Jay McInerney’s bright lights

and big bad intimidating city

 

Reading philosophy books with Poe

to analyze Nietzsche and ascertain

the importance of Karl Marx

 

Having a chat with Poe about

starving alcoholics and poets

who can’t rhyme or keep meter

 

Getting together with Poe just

to goof off on a lazy afternoon

and watch the sun set into evening
