Days of avoiding lunch for a phone-call

by on Mar.16, 2010, under poetry

Days of nothingness
Days of clear skies the temperature descending
Days of no telephone calls or all the wrong ones
Days of complete boredom and nothing
is happening

Days of 1967 coming to a close in the frigid condition of chest
cold and cough

Days of afternoons in the life of a young girl
not being on time

Days of daydreams exploding
Days of utter frustration
Days of my film being cursed and myself
with the curse never lifting

Days of closed windows to keep the cold
out the livingroom warm

Days of avoiding lunch for a phone-call
with change of plans for the day

Days of posting letters
Days of no mail today
Days of fatigue and amphetamine highs
Days of Charles Edward Ives
Days of the 4:00 pm doldrums
Days of wonder drugs to challenge the common cold
Days of utter frustration
Days of forgetting

Days of Rome, Gerard Malanga
