Speaking of Yeats

One more reason I love Gabe Gudding. (Hey, Gabe--we have that gay marriage thing out here in Oregon...)


When I am old and using Revlon hair dye
and am sucking up my pharmacopoeia,
and can drink but Sanka--
when I don't have too many friends anymore
and the bathroom is a place of loneliness--

Yes, when I am old and Revloned and hypnogogic
and nodding at the wheel,
take down this book
and read of one who phoned you less and less,
but who dug you and remembered
your elegant hand
and somewhat geeky look.

(Gabriel Gudding)
