harold norse…………..6.14.09

ol’ harold died
six days ago
the pineapple express
was slow in bringing me
this news

ol’ harold died
anagramed into
to the family’s chagrin
someone told ol’ harold
it might look better
on the spine of
he believed them

in venice days
expatriate beat norse
left his red-bricked
paloma apartment
to stroll the venice boardwalk
his black wig askew
looking for love
hoping for friendship
at least
in a cruel town
filled with
meat poets

i wish you well,
ol’ harold
now they’ll
buy your books
expounding on
your brilliance
while the collectors
grin in their greed

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
