21 Notes On Fundamental Values


1. The man on the lift has no one to blame
but himself. 2. Or is that fair to his godless

children? 3. They own at least a
part of this bloodletting. 4. Who watches the

lonely widower w/ his 5. downcast eyes &
underdeveloped trachea? 6. Not a

villian, viewers. This cast calls for
7. more than one good guy, & a

8. finemother figure would help the rise and fall, the
9. ‘comedic curve’ as the lift 10. stops, just before

the sub-basement. As it should, 11. otherwise
we’d have a motionless film, an 12. epic

w/out a John Williams soundtrack.
13. In accordance w/ terms, 14. laid out years before

at a party hosted by the man’s former lover, 15. a
career ender like this must be viewed by

the entire community, wives, husbands, children,
lovers(two), aunts & uncles from both sides

of the track &, to make it official, a
representative from all three Eagles, BC


High, BC, BC Law. 16. But it’s a false
start this time, no reason to wake the

kids. 17. The man is OK, the 18. fall from
twenty to minus two did no harm. 19. He witnessed

it alone, never wise to real danger, & the
20. EMT is talking to a female cop, who’s

21. going off about the price of wine & a
simple date at Davios.

Without Meaning To

Obscured by its
own beauty

Headlamps for
hangovers

Mescaline is a
sick wet
dog

Are you
hiding? Where

are the quarters
I lent you for
food?

The flood
arrives
and beauty is

washed
to a dull
silver

the mental
cases

rings float
off fingers

chemicals
rise

Brush your
hair
with this fine

alabaster comb
a gift

from a kind
governor
who would never

let his people
go uncoiffured

Sand-colored
dust
fills cracks

in the ordinary.
