from the shores of iwo Jima….Entry for March 19, 2009

On the side of the (cliff) couch
Jim McSherry and i played little army
the green plastic kind frozen
expressions loaded
macHINe gUns
tanks not to scale

we played with our vivid imagination
in the tv newsglow of the vietnam news
103 dead will be shipped home this week a jump from 72
just last week
InspiRed by the army movies his DaD sat down to watch
the rabbit ears covered in tinfoil
constantly moved to get better reception
so hard to get them to stand up
on the carpet battlefield
the music from the MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE
always made me cry

    Annie Leibovitz is a spoiled little
    Brat spoonfed with Great Luck
    her whole wonderful liFe
    she won the lottery of photography back
    when rolling stone was a folded piece of cheap paper
    anyboDy could have taken those shots bitch
    cigarette dangling rock stars and makeUp covered movie
    STARS of
    course people point and sigh
    your grainy black andwhite WorLD
    your naked Lennon with sideburns
    the day he died
    success is being in the right place at the right time
    like sperm seeking eggs a million (or two)
    to one Odds
    Like the penetration The beginning
    (the strobe light) of life success and
    hanging out with mick Jagger for
    you are the framed masterpiece >i am the discolored
    polaroid sick with Fear
    to even walk up armed with cannon to sleeping homless
