dear friends

I forgive you the one you took
off of my pillow
on that court
on Carlton Way.

and I forgive you the other one
you intellectualized with your
creative joy
in Phoenix,
and, after fucking, you both
talking about me.

I forgive you
Joe and Jack and

they always tell me.
or you tell me
and I’m not interested
that I do wonder
why you follow me around to
pick up my droppings.

come follow me now
there might be more….
