...word and lances bent, 
 So, close the ranks and fire the tent! 
 And chill yon coward cavalcade 
 With brazen bugles blaring loud, 
 E'en though our chargers' neighing proud 
 Already has the host dismayed. 
 Spur, horsemen, spur! the charge resounds! 
 On Gaelic spear the Northman bounds! 
 Through helmet plumes the arrows flit, 
 And plated breasts the pikeheads split. 
 The double-axe fells human oaks, 
 And like the thistles in the field 
 See bristling up ...Read More

...The only thing I miss about Los Angeles

is the Hollywood Freeway at midnight, windows down and
radio blaring
bearing right into the center of the city, the Capitol Tower
on the right, and beyond it, Hollywood Boulevard

--pimps, surplus stores, footprints of the stars

--descending through the city
 fast as the law would allow

through the lights, then rising to the stack
out of the city
to the stack where lanes are stacked six deep

 and you on top...Read More

When the heat-cloud sucks the tempest, when the slivered pine-trees fall,

Through the war-gongs of the thunder rings a voice more loud than all--
 It is Fear, O Little Hunter, it is Fear! 
Now the spates are banked and deep; now the footless boulders leap--
 Now the lightning shows each littlest leaf--rib clear--
But thy throat is shut and dried, and thy heart against thy side 
 Hammers: Fear, O...Read More

...barren shelves.
Or maybe it's the cheap Plexiglas above the Chinese lettering
or the sound of car alarms and sirens blaring us back.
The city dead in me swaying down these aisles,
like everything else that fell from my life.

I walk down Main Street
trying to regain my balance
behind the men who walk home
from sweaty jobs with clenched fists
and the women who follow them
pulling their children
like dogs in the rain....Read More
