Show Poem: 10/4/10 @ Records With Merritt (KC, MO)

No one tells you

About the hungry ghost
That lingers when the pain
Has left the body
Oh you can still find it
In hard to read books
Secretly located art shows
Songs minimized in the shuffle

We used to spend a lot of time
Searching for things
Behind old wooden sheds
And upturned flower pots
Librarians on horse back
Jokes wrapped inside
Wrapped inside television commercials
Wrapped inside sports events
Wrapped in side tortillas

Rock Paper Scissors
The Declaration of Independence
Two for one coupon
Expires ten four nineteen
Four ten for Europe
