The Day the Halfway House By the Library Burned Down

Free association is the key,
but a key without a door.
OH WELL. So is my brain.
And so is the big dumb Cosmos
breathing down my neck
like the manic beast that it is.
And what a wretched day it’s been,
all full of summer rain, burning buildings
and new traffic routes.
Why must everything always be
so fucking violent? It keeps things
engaging I guess, but then again,
so does smoking pot,
drinking too much coffee,
and reading Ted Berrigan
as the aquarium drones on.
