REFUGEES FROM REALITY
Or,
The Grubs at the Grad House

O Muse!
Ignore this shabby
Poet. Lavish
No energy upon these words­––
My subjects speak for themselves:

“WE ARE HIDING OUT!”

The three or four hardcore
Never wash their hair,
Shun ambition, and speak only
Of coffee, drugs and coffee.

“Do you play backgammon, cribbage
Or the guitar?”
I’m only thirty and I’ve come
This far!

This fragment is all I’ll manage,
Even if I sit here slurping coffee
Till I die.
