They Say How Did You Go Blind

They Say How Did You Go Blind?

I tell them about dropping from a cloud
A sober cloud
In the Gulf of Finland
Tight as a mother’s wish
And how this falling
Was my only sight
I’m a hit at cocktail parties

**

They Say How Did You Go Blind? Part Two

Masturbation
Licking poisonous stamps
Eating pine bark
Reading the novels of Robbes-Grillet
Standing up for innocence
Kissing urchin spines
Keeping airplanes aloft with my thoughts
