Whiskey Music – Renny Ramone

Truth has no desire, expects nothing
Wish that was the way I could just be
Get so tired sometimes hungry

Quasi-Poems – Stefano Calligaro

DUTY.

 

SWEEPING THE KITCHEN FLOOR

ON SUNDAY MORNINGS

IS NOT MY DUTY.

MY TASK IS TO WASH MY CAR

WITH A RED FOAM WASH GUN

beneath your armpit.

We’re halfway to nowhere,
Obetz, Ohio,
where you make me dig a grave
and bury the last mementos
of my past.

who gives a shit
where you take a piss
I don’t
people fear
what they don’t
understand
