Nick Cage’s Jacket in Wild at Heart
The sun poured molten glass on a porkchop.
for Alan Kaplan
North and South (On the Road Again)
of an ice cream sandwich
let pass the foul smells of an airport hotel:
things are set in motion by night
one drop of wine
on the curriculum of the soul
they slap their bodies on the rock
to go up the river and fuck
light streams through the face
but the voice is wearing thin
Leonora Carrington tattoo
I have lived in you
