Cappy Jack was killed

by a dormant Vietnamese

river parasite


one night at the 420 Cafe

he told me believe nothing

you hear little of what you see

life is about masterpieces

Gianni told me

life is a tragedy

his daughter killed

in a crash coming home

from a club in Italy

his son drowned surfing

in India

The Italian government

took his passport

I sent an email for him

asking for reprieve 

no reply


years later

we had dinner

on the Nieuwmarkt 

now he's dead

natural causes
