"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

blacksonavitch blues

 

he was black

with a jew fro

 

he was the black dog

of jews  in the ghetto

 

someone told me recently

you can’t use that word   all pc  +idiocy

 

just watch me

 

a friend’s parents fought Germans at Warsaw

another’s screamed in the suburban night  nightly

 

and i can’t say  ghetto!

 

back to blacksonavitch  regal  27 inches at the withers

black eyes + pawnails   not standard issue   he was

hybrid

 

humanpoodle  rode a toboggan   hide+seek  a fave

except we always knew where to find him  same closet

where love letters hidden  +found

 

blacksonavitch  why is she having an affair with our

greasy elvis doctor?  blankstare  +sphinx  tiny smile

 

c’mon child  you’ve seen enough for one day  lets play!

 

the game:  here lies blacksonovitch  covered in small bro’s

vomitous blanket   he was a fine man   the real dogfuneral

10 yrs later

 

the stain of his body burned into cork floor   dogtattoo

he visits still   cut to scene in heaven  blacksonovitch  (verst in yiddish)

+ father   driving around in a green impala  circa 1972
