Poetics

songs for james iv

iv

warm air in the house,

cigarette smoke from last night,

sun and deo on the bedpost,

the smell of a banned antibiotic

in your urine.

here a condiment is offered,

bread, butter,

a tattoo on a ringworm,

things for a major organ.

there will be no other

                                    song.
