The Leaves Of Heaven

The leaves of heaven
are ever greene,
& the leaves of the
soul are Sere
& cold

I have failed
my mother
& she has
failed me

Everything about
a human
is doomed
his life, his
things, his
hope, his
work –

The pallbearer
barfs on the
diaper

The phantoms,
The phantoms,
what to do
about the
phantoms?

kiss a hot
wet lightbulb
