Excerpt

There is something to be said for all the stupid

Junk people do to have fun and that’s it

For instance I love meats

Though they are death

The driver’s Canadian uncle has a bathtub

In the basement for the fish he catches

The fishes? And when he wants one

‘He goes down to the basement and kills one’

Perfume in the lobby and time enough

I’m all right, I’ve got yoghurt

Girl with black fingernails biting into a gumball

Walks by and now the poetry of now

Is recognisable and okay

This life is not a novel

Jeff I can’t see my cell phone number
