(Keflavik)

stricken [from]


::record::

a teacher ::record:: helps a boy get a gun

it's about not ::record:: looking mistakable

::record::

houndstooth
accordion attache

bounty hunter provisions


::record:: I told the teacher about Pietro's

I was angry with the police again

it was not my movie

I was mixed up in campaign finance reform

I was sweet shiftless and poor


and stricken

::record::, a boy is loaded


American Express makes it ::record:: better


'providing alternatives to jail for persons who pose no danger to the community'


Loan Consolidators for your ::record:: problems


'but use purpose area #15A if primary focus is drug testing or purpose area #20 if focus is reducing jail crowding'


Effective Sanctions that Fit the ::record:: Budget


somehow I was caught up in this


and questioned about a family ::record:: resemblance


so early in the morning

::record::

the suspicious handbag on the sidewalk


the police are there

but I've neglected them


::record::


I've been told it's the Decade of the Brain


I must step aside


because the opera construction


there's a public fund for demolition


::record:: if you can find it


how did the smallest children ::record:: capture

the 4-foot wingspan

lash it to a branch

so the sewer birds ::record::


how did the smallest children

::record::

and unchecked pestilence


I am asking because there's a question

hanged


in America

::record::

the curiosity

of the fully-covered body


in America

[.............]

[.......... ...]

of humility


one year later we don't know

what happened on the ::record:: plane


how he ::record:: got the gun

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
