Burst


Rambo, having a glass

of wine on the beach,


and she asks,

                       can I have some of that?


and he says, OK,

                             but you have to go away.

                             I really just want to read.


Rambo, growing older.


The day he quit dying his hair,

none of the neighbors knew who he was.


It was a hotel yellow.

He stopped shaving his body altogether.


Rambo, at home

holding hands with the cat.  Remembering,


             Me and Gene Simmons

             talking about being God.


             Me and Mr. T

             doing some shaving.


             Clint Eastwood’s beard.

             What will they say,


             "Rambo and Mr. T

             not wanting to be Clint Eastwood?"


Rambo, exhaustible.


He started a journal called Country Music.


He started a garden for food.


He weeded out all the good throwing rocks.


Colonel Trautman bought him a white goat

                                          to keep off snakes.


An American Ninja

delivered it in the night.


The chickens went crazy.

Rambo hardly noticed.


Rambo, happy.


He drinks all his fluids from

a chilled white wine glass.


He bakes

      his own bread.


He sings:

                a wind for my ship.
