Let’s settle this for good and all.

I want that, too. More than you know.

The title for this has to be clear,
non-misunderstandable, like:

New Poetry by Marx
by William-B,isbane Dick,
the author of Vegetable Poetry

Oh, when I got it, it came definitively, that feeling, that
“they’re coming up with all sorts and dimensions of shit, amidst new lives absconding like turkeys out of avian panic racing to be overtaken by evenings under the stars watching wild boars trot along the baseboards searching for the elephant in your parlour”
sort of thing, you know?

So I put down my pen and said to nobody, “Sam
what is this life of ours but

A Search for Secrets”

Attend all the Pre-events
where I discover

True as the quantum paradox.

The young poet Marx said so.

But don’t take my word for it.

Sam stubbed out his cigar and said,
Don’t worry, I don’t.
