World Tour

I’m planning a
world tour.


I’ll step
off the
train in
Tokyo
Barcelona &
Istanbul
read ten
poems from
the platform
& get
back on.


I plan
to end
the tour in
Montreal &
I expect
Leonard Cohen
to meet
the train.


Please,
anyone who’s
reading this,
spread the
word so
Leonard
will know.


Blah-blah-blah

He’d started saying
blah-blah-blah.


He’d be
in the
middle of
explaining
something &
out it came,
blah-blah-blah.


He’d stop
come at it
from a
different angle,
blah-blah-blah
this &
blah-blah-blah
that.


He’d be
the first
to admit that
blah-blah-blah
was undermining his
credibility but
blah-blah-blah
so what?
