man can not be de-
feated, h’ said, but
yes!, destroyed, as though

my distinction, was an
award, than a grand
canyon space between,
two: are! they options? /

refuse, then to bow;
look up, ’e’s passing?.
(those that killed caesar
had among them, those
he’d pardoned/received
within his own men.)

red herring, i think:
it is ‘twixt ’defeat’
and ‘being destroyed’:
suicide, being first said
hints that h, did not,
but played russian rou-
lette with the trigger
as said n mailer
as did chiko prince
…and the man, die, so.

the man in islands
cites death in nature…
when cyclone busts boat/
house down would be ‘right
I be took, then, too.’

yet, i did think h
did take the right step,
how they let strokes; then
string, hold you up, when
when you cannot hold
frames/crutches, or sit;
just lie still for rats \
other annoyings;
one does hear whispers/(ed)
ngawing’s, rat’s to-do’s /
they blackmark you, one
confidentially, said,
were’t known: complaints/you, tagged

and here’s me hearing:
you could end with some
series of strokes; some
do, with what you’ve got;
years of exercise
and medication
to help withstay same:
thinking Hemingway
missed out / skidadled;
must have strawberries /
peaches and (ice-)cream,
all, there too, surely…


think will join gun club
think automatic
that paper i throw
always hits the bin /
still think governments
are fifth columnists
who want to dis arm
us for terrorists
not as dangerous
think as the hypo

(landon was fastest /
hung as tom dooley;
tom dooley too was
famed vietnam doctor)
