Joji

it is the saddest thing
metastasis,

when the fluids do not
just stay in the lungs
but in the heart
in the liver
practically all over
the body

the big C,
AT the apex of its success
one cries out

God's will be done
and takes a smile at the last
shot.

Josh And Justin

I’m with you, Josh
Over here in Prospect Heights,
only a moron would clam
that Vanderbilt Avenue
without all the bars and restaurants
was better than Vanderbilt Avenue
now WITH all the bars and
restaurants.
Nighttime foot traffic is your friend.
And so are places to go.
Those guys in Gowanus
are choking their
neighborhood.

Now Josh, you’ve already got one
Jim Mamary restaurant in DP.
I moved from Ditmas Park to
Clinton Hill this past summer,
and have completely stopped
eating out.

The take out and eat in places
on Myrtle Ave. are all half as good
and twice as expensive as anything
on Cortelyou.
You could be living somewhere
much worse, and the
Q trains are all fancy now,
too.

bye. take care.

Journal Entry #1

last night we attended edu's wedding.
his dialogue is only gratitude.
thank you visitors, your presence is enough
even if you bring me no gifts.
the mother in-law has come from america with her second husband.
his papa, married to an old fil-am arrived ten days ago but resides
in the hotel

alone.

i am making a story.
it is true. i am making a reflection. am i a mirror?

edu is a man. no promises for ling-ling.
when it was my turn to speak, i said, life is full of surprises
and it is hardheaded, it simply follows the lines of your palms
as written.
no deviation. plain destiny. everything turns out to be good and
always in our favor.

the audience faces turn into bright moons.
so the venue becomes one feast of lights.
and there was dancing and drinking. the men become too lustful.
and the women to flirty.

the children swims at the pool nearby.

lanterns of light fly to the sky.
fireworks made the day the fourth of july.

i was drunk and i did not know what i was saying.

the following morning i phoned a fried.
edu's was a perfect wedding. everyone lost themselves.

Journalese

there is doubt
is this work worth the effort?

he has no time
you see, to read the details

put it there
let it rot there

some molds start to grow
on every heading of poetry

or if it were wine
something keeps on fermenting

you wait for more time
something in there keeps bubbling

you hear the sound
of this beautiful disturbance

there is the hissing sound of the snake
and be careful

it poses and so alive
it is now ready to bite
