"There's No Real Pleasure in Life--"

There are things like haircuts indicative
of the 1980's. There are also suit jackets
that call to mind a certain era.

There's nothing I like less than interviews with actors.
But I'm also not a big fan of poetry.
Except in the concrete.

But in the abstract, where it wears diapers
and drags on clove cigarettes,
I am not happy with any journalism.

Except poetry, which is always a dead basket to me.
So people like me and you swim in these fish.
That bread is hollow, man. It's no picnic.
