Mudlark No. 49 (2013)
Walter in a linen suit chin held high
And one curly haired boy
Love                   how long we persist
Third attempt at second read of Ulysses

A woman in red wails over birth certificates
Millions in collateral                   Your cousin Roberta next
Let’s dust the ferns with our butts in the hammock
Always the idea of the commune in Kentucky

And the architecture of endless additions
And Sarah’s bat mitzvah
And the listing of things to mean something
And the wind coming down with common names

And Jim scratching out all except “lived experience”
