NEW POEMS

by

Alex Gildzen



BREAKFAST AT A RESTAURANT WITH NO NAME IN INDEPENDENCE VA

the silver-toothd man

in Stetson & shitkickers

calld us "sweet boys"

as he stubbd out

his cigaret in his eggs


AN ELDERLY BEATNIK REMINISCES

at a gallery on Canyon Rd

he showd slides of communes



"it was art" he told the crowd

"everything we did was art"


IN A PARK IN MARFA

the way the ravens

                                       circle

I wonder if I look

                                       dead

they cd fly thru the space

that once was a window

at once was a place

calld Rodriguez Meat Market



but I bet I look tastier

than the memory of meat
