Mark Jarman

(5 June 1952 / Mount Sterling, Kentucky)

The Black Riviera

There they are again.It's after dark.
The rain begins its sober comedy,
Slicking down their hair as they wait
Under a pepper tree or eucalyptus,
Larry Dietz, Luis Gonzalez, the Fitzgerald brothers,
And Jarman, hidden from the cop car
Sleeking innocently past.Stoned,
They giggle a little, with money ready
To pay for more, waiting in the rain.
