SKY BOOTHS IN THE BREATH SOMEWHERE, The ASHBERY ERASURE Poems by david dodd lee BlazeVOX [books]

 Fit Under Here

I remember a ship

Dammit, I meant all along
I should take that other child

presently care is a hat

a father looking out the window

time's just a driveway,
the parrot said, staring into
the thudding fog

and the future is a salesman
with his name tag flying in a void
