THE COLLECTED POEMS (IV –70s RADIO)

I.

Billy

Be a hero

The rest of us will creep out the back

Our wives were happy

Our kids were happy

They didn’t care about Billy

After all, their Dads came back.

II.

The night Chicago died

There was nothing good on TV

I went to bed early

and missed it all.

Dammit!

III.

If you leave me now,

You take away the deepest part of me.

You know I can’t allow that.

You’re not going anywhere.

Nowhere good.

IV.

Everybody was kung-fu fighting

But I was kung-fu loving

Drunken Master

Mantis Style

Long Fist

Eight Extremes

White Lotus

Ah!

V.

Love me

Love my dog

Love my brother

Like whatever

Love me

Love yourself

Love the weather

Lovety love love love.

VI.

I think I love you

But what am I so afraid of?

Noises in the dark..

Drunk drivers.

Faces at the window.

Child abductors.

Prison.

Public speaking.

Rectal bleeding.

All the usual stuff.
