trout fishing–what else?

  1. “blow it all away”
    — written for Brautigan (works just fine with this painting)

    onetime voice
    of the counterculture
    found—dead as hell
    rotting on the floor
    beside a bottle
    & a .44
    in a one-man gunfight—
    caught lowdown
    during those risky seconds
    of the night
    when dark fingers
    started to pull
    at his dirty shirt
    until he was mesmerized
    by the sexy eyes
    of that old whore suicide

    trout fisherman at rest—

    no more clawing
    at the walls
    of his box—cursing
    the empty soul of sanity

    no more stumbling
    toward the end-of-the-line
    up to his neck
    in accumulated time

    now that the fire
    has died away
    the wolves
    have moved in
    to have at his bones

    their perfect hate
    now that he is gone

  2. db, i want you to sing at my grave
