PETER GRIECO // A Poem from
At the Musarium
[9901 – 10000]
Yawning bohemian toleration
reserves for itself a wintery
friendliness, Angela, so heave your
whirlwind, embark on the firmament
& clutch Carlos to your penitent, ascetic
armchair. Don’t prolong your livid lamentation,
sequel to your lamentable cleanliness.
Don’t scar his greasy cleverness. Instead
invade his grating absorption & terminate
his repressed & ignoble moustache. Herein
the timely dismissal. Herein the stalwart
buggy & its willful lining—without
a sous, without a farthing.
