undergrad days, #1

lately I spend my time
standing on landings and
staring out windows
trying to see past the gloom to my mountains

every evening I creep in
schuck my clothing
reach for my medicine as for a lover
overcoming the childproof cap in the dark

undergrad days, #2

a frivolous whim
we said, “what th’ fuck”
a beer run
a cool group
odd & underground
barely Midwestern
drinking beer all day long
in the frat house
tumble-down room with crates & photos
and beer lights to worship,
or something

a frivolous whim
we said, “what th’ fuck”
a frolic, of sorts
a cool guy
odd & underground
barely Midwestern
making fire all dusk long
in the frat house
tumble-down bunk bed with difficult sheets
and beer lights to see by,
or something

(1983)
