Vrrt

I saw the black right hand of your robot
tattoo on your left shoulder peeking out
from your polkadot shirt and swear I heard
that ‘vrrt’ noise they tend to use in movies
my robot would silent as brambles

BULLY FOR THEM

Nobody should experience anything they don’t need to, if they don’t need poetry bully for them. I like the movies too. And after all, only Whitman and Crane and Williams, of the American poets, are better than the movies.
