...k mirrors.
But me,
I don't have even a book of ABC's
that lives on this street
and carries my name on its door!
But what the hell...
I don't look back,
the lead dirt of the composing room
 on my face,
seventy-five cents in my pocket,


The piece got left in the middle.
It rained and swamped the lines.
But oh! what I would have written...
The starving writer sitting on his three-thousand-page

...u sure don't look human, said the man. 

But that doesn't make me a fluid, twittered the ape.

Well I don' know what the hell you are, so just stop it, 
cried the man.

I was just sitting here reading the newspaper when you 
splashed coffee all over me, piped the ape. 

I don't care if you are a liquid, you just better stop 
splashing on things, cried the man. 

Do I look fluid to you? Take a good look, hooted the ape.

If you don't stop I'll put you i...Read More

...Rican girl in tight white spandex and a push-up bra
sits me down and starts chopping my hair:
"Girlfriend," she says, "what the hell you got growing outta
your head there, what is that, hair implants? Yuck, you want me to touch
that ****, whadya got in there, sandwiches?"

I just go: "I'm sorry."

She starts snipping my carefully cultivated Johnny Lydon post-Pistols hairdo.
My foul little dreadlocks are flying around all over the place but I'm

...s! Farmhouse! At 10 quid a year!"
"I dunno wot place you are talking about."
Said the deaf old man.
Said Jack, "What the Hell!"
But the deaf old man took a pin from his desk, picked
a piece of wool the size of a hen's egg from his ear,
had a good look at it, decided in its favour and re-
placed it in the aforementioned organ....Read More

by Berryman, John than Henry's chill, longer than his loss
and longer than the letter that he wrote 
that day to the widow
to find out what the hell had happened thus.
All souls converge upon a hopeless mote
tonight, as though

the throngs of souls in hopeless pain rise up
to say they cannot care, to say they abide
whatever is to come.
My air is flung with souls which will not stop
and among them hangs a soul that has not died
and refuses to come home....Read More

...the fish jumped and for a second I thought it was a frog. I'd

never seen a fish like that before.

 God-damn ! What the hell!

 The fish ran deep again and I could feel its life energy

taking to the air and becoming an air-raid siren.

 The fish jumped a few more times and it stil...Read More

...ter a while
when people inquired
" arnt……are you?"
i answered,
"with a name like levy,
what the hell do you think i am?"
A Ritz Cracker? A flying bathtub?
An arab?                      etc.

But now its getting pretty hip
to be a jew
and some of my best friend are
becoming converted to halavah,
even the crones who suddenly
became World War 2 catholics are
now praising bagels & lox

...stroke slowly, wanting to
make it last. Her eyes looked directly into mine. 
"What's your name?" I asked. 
"What the hell difference does it make?" she asked. 
I laughed and went on ahead. Afterwards she dressed and I drove her back to the bar but
she was difficult to forget. I wasn't working and I slept until 2 p.m. then got up and
read the paper. I was in the bathtub when she came in with a large leaf- an elephant ear. 
"I knew you'd ...Read More
