poems || Steve Dalachinsky

conversations w/marvin #13

on the corner of bdway & mars
across from the church of
( & stardust )
where all the fabulous solidifying
of truthes
between the late/weights & doning
& sighing & singing
& waiting aftshaft for dinner
marvin graced w/lots of questions
looked absently up at the billboards
read & quietly proclaimed:

" i wouldn't mind if somebody stole my identity."

conversations w/marvin # 14

marvin & i went for a dip
in the community pool
as the sky over cast
& one kid kicked the other in the eye
leaning against the pool's side
feeling the water rush in
i heard marvin babble some unutterable muttering

wha' ya say? - i stumbled

"nothing" - he wetly declared - " i was talking to myself
because i'm
such a lucky person."

marvin, i say to him,you know the poem's dead -
he's too busy sitting in a shady corner
(one shoe off)
counting his money

it's 7 .pm.
everyone seems to be packing up
for the day
tho there's at least an hr. of sunlight

listen marvin,
i said
not the thing you should be eating-
bent, sheer headed
streaming ,petrified brief
mister marvin burnt the dainty
fly master & replied,
skull cupped -
yes i

Subject: Fw: conversations w/marvin 3 for dw again & sb

marvin sighed -
i'm tired of waiting
lad - give me the dough
so i can
the patriarch of clutttering
where i began my clocking
called me a complete idiot
because i'd been trained to call
a thing a thing
rather than the
he asked for

so i got tired of waiting for the dot
like now
so please can i go(t)..
