good weather


is like


good women-


it doesn't always happen


and when it does


it doesn't


always last.


man is


more stable:


if he's bad


there's more chance


he'll stay that way,


or if he's good


he might hang


on,


but a woman


is changed


by


children


age


diet


conversation


sex


the moon


the absence or


presence of sun


or good times.


a woman must be nursed


into subsistence


by love


where a man can become


stronger


by being hated.



I am drinking tonight in Spangler's Bar


and I remember the cows


I once painted in Art class


and they looked good


they looked better than anything


in here. I am drinking in Spangler's Bar


wondering which to love and which


to hate, but the rules are gone:


I love and hate only


myself-


they stand outside me


like an orange dropped from the table


and rolling away; it's what I've got to


decide:



kill myself or


love myself?


which is the treason?


where's the information


coming from?



books...like broken glass:


I wouldn't wipe my ass with 'em


yet, it's getting


darker, see?



(we drink here and speak to


each other and


seem knowing.)



buy the cow with the biggest


tits


buy the cow with the biggest


rump.



present arms.



the bartender slides me a beer


it runs down the bar


like an Olympic sprinter


and the pair of pliers that is my hand


stops it, lifts it,


golden piss of dull temptation,


I drink and


stand there


the weather bad for cows


but my brush is ready


to stroke up


the green grass straw eye


sadness takes me all over


and I drink the beer straight down


order a shot


fast


to give me the guts and the love to


go


on.



from "poems written before jumping out of an 8 story window" - 1966
