number five alive


Yeah yeah, I know, such a lame post title. But guess what? I eat lame post titles for breakfast.


Charleston Times 5


I met this first girl full of fun on the boardwalk

because of my friend

Jarod and his lingering need

of some other.

and the next girl was a bookstore queen

who couldn’t be

much more than eighteen.

the third girl was wearing a Virginia shirt

and showered easily

in the apartment where we made music.

the next girl, finally, took

off my clothes in her coffee shop and

said that the best part

of poetry is the break.

the girl after that, still that girl, put

my clothes back on

in a different shop and told

me that poetry is

poetry and any other nonsense

is just girls and boys dreaming.


that girl took off her glasses, took off my

hands, said that she

saw the horizon,

took me to the ocean, and made me stand,

facing the wind.

this is my favorite of the series so far - you should collect all yr best "Times" and make a book called "Book of Times" - good picture too...

Yeah, this is looking South down Meeting (close to Calhoun and across from Marion Square).
