1. duane reade

    smoked a piece of
    dryer lint. thought
    It was weed. hoped.
    I was not offered the
    position as an adult
    so I’m going back to
    16 instead, playing
    in a band crumbing
    nugs off the bureau
    into a one-hitter.
    there was a day
    when all possibilities
    seemed possible.
    as you age, to hell with
    possibilities, you’d rather
    stay home.
    duane reade
    is always open. I go there.
    it’s one of the places
    there is to go. am I
    the only one unhappy?
    good, I’ll be unhappy.
    life is a distraction
    from a distraction, fits
    and starts, abbrev., com-
    promise. by the checkout:
    calamine, detergent, special
    K 2 for $5. I barely buy
    one thing (hand sanitizer
    89c). I wish these americans
    would just die. I’m sick
    of pretending
    their ugliness is
    beautiful. yes, I’m
    complaining in my poetry
    and I even took all the
    poetry out so it’d be
    easier to understand
    and more worthless.
    I’m a disgruntled
    human I don’t care
    I’ve been through love
    and back, death, work, etc.
    nothing took me.
    am I awake?
    or just supervising
    the hypnotic dream?
    from the store, carrying
    a bag of rilke, everyday
    is a resurrection
