Henry’s Tourette Syndrome Love Poem For Reggie
“Come on, lady, I’ve seen continents drift faster than that!”
Becker to an old lady taking her time entering Reggie’s Diner
Love poem for Reggie composed with lines
from Stephen Hawking’s theories,
actually, it’s lines that Wallace Stevens
never used though they would’ve improved his poetry.
Tourette syndrome attack: eff you,
eff you, you effing bitch…!”
Don’t worry, it’s still a love poem,
but, maybe it was written by Rod McKuen
on Stanyan Street,
maybe it’s a love poem
written by a soldier to his girlfriend---
the letter arrives a week after he’s killed in combat.
