    ★★★

    ON THE REBRANDING OF RITE AID

    And the price of business is: dollar raises
    at multi-million dollar companies, $1,000
    packs of trading cards that used to retail
    for next to nothing, & the multiplex down
    the street reopening for just a few weeks,
    only to then suddenly, permanently, shut
    down a few months later. 

    I’ll be old when all of that changes hands,
    & is no longer mine to call my own.

    And if you’re speaking, I’m listening, & if
    it’s something we want to pursue, I’ll put
    on your old clothes & wait for you—

    ★★

    I forget everything once I 
    turn the shower radio on; 

    it says I have ten minutes
    to feel better about today,
    but I just don’t think that’s
    enough.

    Veslemøy's Song

    ★★★★

    I used to do research for Criterion at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Once, while waiting for some microfilm to be brought up to me from the archives, I wrote this on a piece of paper:

    “How can I extract the atoms of my dreams,
    so that I may stamp & clear them for reality?”
