Cover of Planet of the and dog....

–Iowa City, 1978

I was the one reading Stendahl
With my Coke bottle spectacles
And Rasputin gloves
When I lay down
There was no ceiling

Other things occurred—
I went to the mineralogical institute
They let me finger the stones
Later the moon was full
I drew piano keys in the air
