Untitled/Titled - Poem by Jarvis Black

I take drinks with the whore and
the wiseman
and live one thousand times
between them
i sit for tea with a shepard
and a ghost
i am awed by the insight
i dangle by a thread
over beasts and vipers
with whore, ghost,
the wise and
the flock keeper
to take witness
to write poem
when i am dead
when i am gone
