Do Not Disturb


The discretionary sign
hung from the doorknob
of the door to the room
in dallas in a holiday inn
untouched by your hand
for three long dog days
it waved to the house-
keepers like a wind sock
come clean another day
buy me time to neatly lay
plastic in the bathroom
compose a goodbye note
load the pistol with only
one bullet or reconsider

Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
