i pretend to be a buddhist monk

i want to shave my head

but afraid of what i might find hiding


* * *

reading jose kozer

i too am more or less a middle-class poet

who took a shower today

who prefers health

and a happy marriage

* * *

in the produce section tonight

as i was scanning the tomatoes

an older lady says to me

oh! you look like jon huntsman!

he's so handsome

do you know who he is?

he's running for president

he's married and has seven kids

* * *

i persist

i write the next line

and the next line

and the next line
