Poem: Smell Coast To Coast Roses

By: Gerard Sarnat


Walking new body
on Frisco’s Embarcadero

Pacifica Radio radical
paranoia in general

but now specifically
about how radioactive

left titanium knee & hip
are alt-right gov’t’s way

to get back at moi
for protesting Trump.

Despite hard work +
pretty good pedigrees

geriatric word-tinkerers
of all sorts – best friend

is youngest member
of our men’s group

well as most interested
in children but he’s

also the only widower,
never had kids

— come out from
our individual podunks

to instantiate being
myself or anyone

else here or strolling
through Boston Gahden.
