all hail the black dude who plays Hank Williams in the Bedford Ave stop on the L train

my eyes hurt like your landlord just ate them.
praise the lord.

I am an idiot in the world,
but I can switch kings, just like you
and your blindness.

chicken heads flock to me.
but these days
I try to swat them away.

it's raining in Brooklyn.

every body has a little darkness
in them: sorrow and such.
poetry sings it to them.

I am hungry.
and my leg hurts.
and I have heart burn.

I repair to working
on the script
in a neutral place.
Success is seven pages.

praise mistakes, dreams, worries
and this farm called forever.
