Last Night They Came And Took
typewriter paint box
dictionary, (oddly common words underlined or written in the margins.)
ash tray like a bulldog head
mouth still filled
Marlboro butts empty Norman Rockwell match books.
denim jacket faded
shoulder torn by a lawn mower,
loose tobacco lint
Goldsmiths Art Shop receipts
napkin from The Russian Lady
name of Bitkis written on the back
and a business card for chair canning.
four real silk Japanese prints.
two exactly the same posters of Deborah Harry.
sleeping bag he used for a bed.
chair he carved Africans into.
lamp he won at the carnival last year for getting two black targets with one shot.
and for me the one who loved him?
