Hermit

They pulled a thieving hermit
out of the Maine woods
after twenty-seven years.
I didn’t care what the police said.
I didn’t care what the victims said,
and I sure as hell didn’t care
what the news-people said.
I was too entranced by what the hermit said.
He said before he’d been caught, jailed,
and integrated back into this loud
shit-hole society
he was free
absolutely free.

 

The Loving Thing

It’s the thing
that should come the easiest,
but for me
it’s always difficult,
which is why
on this warm rainy night
I’m fighting the fruit-flies
swarming my wine glass
instead of you.

 

Tomorrow the river

and all my cares with it
if I can just drown
myself in sleep
tonight.
