PHANTOM VOICES

Folder: 
BARD'S SHARDS

 

“ Ginsberg’s a cocksucker.” he said

                      hearing phantom voices

           calling him

              over the bizarre twist

                            of Frank Zappa

better to read Blake or Stevens

               one might suggest;

          rewinding a tape

                            ready to go drinking

            forget about

                  the Art Museum

and Duchamp and Miro and Klee

                   It’s probably all

             for the best

                   or so

           he tells you

expecting you to jump for joy

          when you feel

              like expectorating madness

    and defecating

         freely without

            muses hassling you

                for not

taking a pen and notebook to the toilet

                 Yeah, it’s a weird fate,

                      everyone knows it

It can go on & on without ever ending

                 but the tears

         you suppress

              are healthy expression

    bound to come out

                   someday

            like it or not
