Sometimes you bleed
Sometimes you live

Futures
-- by Klipschutz

The market looks honor bright for Future futures.
Past futures may be all dressed up from Saks

and Neiman-Marcus, you betcha, but still the Past
is over, dead as a wolf shot from on high, doncha know?

So buy into the Future IPO, one share, one vote,
and see your country’s value rise and shine.

The Wisdom of the Fathers (a fount poem)
-- by Klipschutz

His first agent advised him
that if he wanted to get published,
he would have to "get rid of
that Indian stuff."

Plumbers
-- by Klipschutz

Before Joe there were others. John McCain is old enough to remember. So am I, goddammit.

Meet G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt the Plumbers – back then, tradesmen, like professors, were more formal; not only did they not go by their Christian names, they had panache: an opening initial! These two worked together cleaning up a psychiatrist’s office (one of his patients was leaking), then went on to a big job, using a crew, when during an emergency in May 1972 they were told to enter, keys or no, a rented space on the sixth floor at 2600 Virginia Ave., part of the sprawling Watergate complex a stone’s throw from the White House.

Joe What’s His Name may be John’s handyman, but G. Gordon will always be our First Plumber.


Gross Misinterpretation Of The Real Thing
-- by Sarah Bartlett

I was pushing
my cart through
the checkout line
when a tall girl
in cowboy boots
approached.
She looked famous
so I said:
Great show
last night.
She smiled,
and I held out
my receipt.
She asked me
how to spell
lonely,
and signed her
name across
my dry goods.
