Tuesday: Overcast


My favorite contemporary
hotshot poet, the Spader-like
Nick Twemlow is writing
three books: Self Defense,
Sheepfighting, and Future
Dominator. I named one
of these books and wrote
all the poems in it. Twemlow
does not yet know this,
as he’s busy walking around
New Zealand. Meanwhile,
this isn’t Canada. If it were
Canada, things would be different.
We’d publish poems about cross
-stitching. We’d say precious
things like: “I am nailed
to my wife.” We’d get drunk
and defoliate things. But mostly,
we’d punch sheep. In New Zealand,
that is. Not Canada.
