Ladies and gentlemen, your president:

''The burden is on the critics to explain where the weapons of mass destruction are. If they think they were destroyed, the burden is on them to explain when he destroyed them and where he destroyed them.''

Robin (can't sleep poem)

Said to a species said
and what does the robin have to do with

all of this? Like a trick
a deck of pinstripes shuffled

dilapidated pinstripes blistered morning
Say the robin doesn’t return?

Wonderful, I’ll shell out the money
for wood to burn memory

Been reading-

Di Prima, Diane. Pieces of a Song (selected):

I have deserted my post, I cdnt hold it
rearguard/to preserve the language/lucidity:
let the language fend for itself

Koch, Kenneth. Ko, or A Season on Earth:

"O Ocean, Ocean, salty, cool, and green!'
And then: 'Perhaps you're marvelling at the fact
I have so many colors-if you'd seen
Some other human fish, you'd not react
So forcibly to me..."


Elmslie, Kenward. Routine Disruptions (selected):

The sun, goddamn thief, has dusted my face with the orange
rays of its orange days...

Berger, John. Success and Failure of Picasso.

Stanley, George. A Tall, Serious Girl:

The culture knows
what it knows
& what it calls
the supernatural
is like fried won ton

No time to write for the next couple of days. So, with apopogies to Ron Padgett, a sonnet:
