some friday morning brautigan


WE MEET. WE TRY. NOTHING HAPPENS, BUT

We meet. We try. Nothing happens, but
afterwards we are always embarrassed
when we see each other. We look away.

IMPASSE

I talked a good hello
but she talked an even
better good-bye.

"STAR-SPANGLED" NAILS

You've got
Some "Star-Spangled"
Nails
In your coffin, kid.
That's what
They've done for you,
Son.


A STUDY IN ROADS

All the possibilities of life,
all roads led here.

I was never going anyplace else,
41 years of life:

Tacoma, Washington
Great Falls, Montana
Oaxaca, Mexico
London, England
Bee Caves, Texas
Victoria, British Columbia
Key West, Florida
San Francisco, California
Boulder, Colorado

all led here:

Having a drink by myself
in a bar in Tokyo before
lunch,
wishing there was somebody to talk
to.

JAPANESE WOMEN

If there are any unattractive
Japanese women
they must drown them at birth
