▼ WILLIE BOBO: FRIED NECK BONES AND SOME HOME FRIES from "Uno-Dos-Tres" Verve (V6-8648) (US) 1965
Seen Paterson lately ?Rosetta sniffs. Fishes in her anorak for pen and scribble pad. At half past nine between the roaches.
Not three days since.
Bless me father, for I have sinned.
Three days and thirteen prawns since I last dropped a dime.
They can all go fuck themselves. Gargle the blood of Christ.
All right, I said.Halfway to a question.
The air in the narrows
makes tidy museum pieces
of rotten fruit, spilled fluids.
Oldenberg. Jackson Pollock.
The smell is not pronounced
but stutters, pops
like yellow buttons on
Mickey Mouse's pants
Close to the floor
flat as a foundling floor show
unable to flee
Even the paint on the wall
reminds one of spoiled flesh
J.K. Rawling on a bad day
beset by dowts
crowsfeet on linoleum
All the wizards are dead
There is no turning the corner.
