Any readers?

I just got the book "what matters most is how well you walk through the fire"...

Looks good!

witty doesn't even begin to do this guy justice.


The Great Slob (from "Septuagenarian Stew" 1994)

I was always a natural slob
I liked to lay upon the bed
in undershirt (stained, of
course) (and with cigarette
holes)
shoes off
beer bottle in hand
trying to shake off a
difficult night, say with a
woman still around
walking the floor
complaining about this and
that,
and I'd work up a
belch and say, "HEY, YOU DON'T
LIKE IT? THEN GET YOUR ASS
OUT OF HERE!"

I really loved myself, I
really loved my slob-
self, and
they seemed to also:
always leaving
but almost
always
coming
back.

Not to be confused with the wittiness of Burroughs, who shot his 2nd wife in the head doing the William tell apple on the head scene.

I've only listened to "Hostage" aside from a few excerpts in "The Beat Reader", but it's great. Its a poetry reading in San Pedro(?) with a couple of hecklers, but he handles 'em pretty well. He was a tough old bastard.

"man's best friend"

I told the guy -he was watering his lawn-
you ever squirt my dog
again and you'll have to deal with me.
he just kept on watering, looking straight ahead,
and he said, I ain't worried, you punks talk about
doing it but you never do it.

he was an old white-haired guy, kind of dumb. I could
feel the dullness radiating off him.
I yanked the hose from his hand, turned him around and
sank a hard right to his gut.
he dropped like a stone and just lay on his
back on the lawn
holding his stomach and breathing
hard.
he looked pitiful.
I picked up the hose and watered him down good,
soaked his clothes, then gave him a good dose
in the face and walked off.

I went down to the store and got a fifth of scotch and a six-pack.

when I came back he was gone.
I went up to my apartment and told Marie that I
had taken care of the matter with the guy who
squirted our dog.
she asked me, what did you do, kill him?
and I told her, no, I just explained things to him.
and she wanted to know, what did I mean, I
explained things to him?

and I told her, never mind, where are some clean
glasses?

and then the dog came walking in.
Koko.

you gotta know I liked him
plenty.
