Glad to be Unhappy

1 February 2012

Tell me Martin –

I remember the tutorial,
(on who? Hewett?)
about Stalin’s midnight
Mandelstam phonecall,

but as the grey sky marshaled troops
for another assault on the swollen creeks
I did my best to forget
public service selection criteria.

Settling down to nicotine and the Pepsi Prince,
& I find that line:
there is room in the room I room in.
As startling as a parent revealing a disguised adoption.

Tell me Martin, did you tell us the line was from Berrigan?

Logging on to Soulseek
searching for Eric Dolphy tracks
because I’m still not sure

why anyone would be glad to be unhappy.
