the snake-oil blues
do u have a roster of carpetbaggers in your family?
all sleaze+imposter feigning love ardently especially
during heroin addiction date rape and the like
u probably do not
reminiscent too of the d’Urbervilles sham aristocrats preying
in this case the mud of Poland+the dung of Kenora embedded in
not unlike themselves embedded in my psyche flotsam+jetshit
now being excised from my heart one chunk at a time was i born
to be kind?! clearly a curse but hey the last shall be first eh
..last MRI of this poet’s heart..
