gerard sarnat, heroine with the golden arm*: may the force of the road be with you

heroine with the golden arm*: may the force of the road be with you

Bruised plus scarred from
morphine — much better hands
seen on her clock,fist bump sweating
beebies – we each got damaged together

shaking our cages —
“There are plenty places
of weakness not all of it evil —
I forget that from time to time.”**

Oy, among the usual assortment
of not my 1st rodeo eye catchers,
I was particularly attracted to a 65-70ish
Darth Vaderoid huge fatted androgynous

fetal-faced purple blond crew-cutted spider
in black pants, tank top, belly plus love handles
hanging over hidden belt, dancing with whomever
he could catch ‘n hold. He was the predatory Judge***

 

 

*thanks to Nelson Algren’s nearly eponymous novel
** RIP Peter Fonda, 1940-6August2019
who spoke similar words in the movie, Ulee’s Gold
*** out of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic Blood Meridian.
