… excuse my charitable charientism…

Don’t Mess With Texas

The trouble with Creeley
was that he used too few words.
That’ll doom anybody to die in Odessa, Texas.

Zukofsky couldn’t draw a crowd,
he was the antithesis of Mayakovsky
and died of TB in San Antonio, Texas.

Pound (Run, Silli Man!) tried to revive a dead art,
but the gods ignored him in the end
and crucified him in Corpus Christi, Texas.

You can’t put poetry on a pedestal,
it will climb down every time
and head back to Paris, Texas.
