She was a Niederdorfstrasse stripper

I bought champagne we drank

She spoke English  she said

I have  something special for you

the next night i went back I waited

halfway down the street I heard her

calling where are going come back


i was in the beginning

centuries came before me

i learned but was always 

who i was born and when


you ruined it

no poetry

When we got to Edam

There was a goat at the gate

Chained to a post a little

Dog house for shelter

We had lunch it started to rain

live until

you die

my friend 

said then

almost died

lives now

until he's


Another Letter From A Friend

I'll be fine.

My Dr. figured out what my problem is 

and why unprovoked blood clots are happening to me.

It's nice to know I'll be walking down the street or doing something 

and I'll just drop dead from a stroke.


will i be ok

i think you'll be ok

this feels amazing

i can't believe you're doing this

i love you

i love you too

i just want to see you smile
