Trying to Get Original

He was
trying to
get original
he put
his left
shoe on
his right
foot &
his right
one on
the left
wrote anonymous
love letters
on butterfly
wings chanted
Gregorian
to a
Motown beat.


Alone at
3 a.m. in
his cold-
water flat,
wearing a
World-War-
One Red-
Cross tunic
& Austrian
combat boots.
