To the sound of syncopated moans it suddenly dawned 
on me that dryer lint removal was long overdue, 
rather like my public library books on gardening for beginners
and Artaud's early essays (translated, naturally).

Where I'm From

But we were broke, not poor
Syrup sandwiches using white bread, ramen or whatever’s there
Watching taped rerun, reciting words acting as if we truly compare
Asking them who gets toons after the tax holiday
