Gogyohka 6.16.09

John said he liked to think the speaker of this first one was moss:

whenever I think
on my death
I wonder if I’m dwelling
because I like
to live in shadows

The statue says
all we want
is freedom from want.
All we got
was freedom to want.

I read
Ginsberg’s Kaddish
to them
until the sun went down.
We sat in darkness.

We gave him a camera
in Adair, Iowa
and said show us your life.
We never saw him again
until pictures came in the mail.

A dream
of a life
without machines
is as dangerous
as an American dream.
