I love Gregory Corso

like I love
millipedes

like I love
I love like

piano rolls
sound like
takeaway

so
hold the margarine !

JT likes
the one who says
she’ll continue
to be
‘a misunderstood
free agent’

Tom Aquinas says
I can tell you
all about time,
but I can’t
tell you
what it is

what some say is
a parallel world
is actually
a tv repeat

how many repeats
half-remembered
in one lifetime ?

oh dear,
now
I’m buried,
it’s the wrong grave

I’m next
to a model pyramid
