jakes night before jail poem
while jake is in jail
towers this large long beacon of solitude and beatific longing
while jake is in jail
this wild souled thing, sole being more than shoe bottoms, but
connotating that thing as well.
while jake is in jail,
we do what we can,
dancing stompdancing
to bring the walls of jericho down
i am meanwhile becoming more and more political and less and less feeling the need to think that this is something to apologize for.
while jake is in jail
i read a book that has a recipe
of ways to physically dissolve prison walls with some sort of solvent chemical
for purposes of liberation,
while jake is in jail,
i do that with this
while jake is in jail
pretending that the epic solitude of my petty personal longing for dudes and girls with dudes is confusing but that that is poetry too, a solvent of thought chemical longing for foremost
them days when jake ain't in jail, ain't gon be no more.
