IHope You Were Laughing, Sometimes
(to John)

Languid nights of weedand Ripple
reciting Dylan withsly humor
visualizing MotorpsychoNightmare
and the Memphis Blues
We wanted to go
to Desolation Row
because it sounded
more exciting
than Kansas
and our innocence
bored us.

I heard you spent sometime
in that neighborhood
but I never saw youthere
Nor you me.
We should have metagain
and had some wine
and laughed
at the Desolation
we'd dreamed
and the absurdities
we'd met.
