FOR HE IS RISEN – AFTER SLEEPING LATE

 

JOSEPH BRODSKY’S BROAD SKY, HIS HORIZON HIKE

 

HIS POETIC EXILE ACCEPTED, I READ-RED

 

AND I HAVE A YOUNG RUSSIAN VISITOR, NEXT BED

 

THIS OLD-BOY, YOUNG ALMOST MAN, FROM RUSSIA TO WE

 

HAS COME TO TRY AMERICA – LAND OF THE FREE

 

LIKE BRODSKY, THE PLAN WENT NOT ACCORDING TO TRICK

 

WHO KNEW? SENT TO A PLACE AS SMALL AS ITS NICK: THEO

 

THEODOSIA, MISSOURI.

 

HIS USA COUNTRY-MOUNTAIN MISERY, MOSTLY

 

SEE MY DAD HAS HALF-MOVED NOW AND LOVES IT

 

I VISITED AND WE DECIDED TO BE ANOTHER HOST FAMILY

 

NOW HIS FAMILY SET 2, THE ROWDY VANCE-BRAUM CREW

 

MARIETTA MADNESS, ATLANTA ATTITUDE, YES Y’ALL

 

DEEP SOUTH HUMIDITY, NEW SOUTH CONSCIOUSNESS

 

ST. LOUIS, HE SAW, NASHVILLE, HE SAW, THE BUS, HE SAW

 

NOW HE SEES:

 

EXCELLENT-EXILE-EXIT…STRATEGIES

 

PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY BELLIES

 

ATL RAP IDIOSYNCHRONICITIES

 

SOUTHERN MAMA NICETIES

 

GIRLS WITH BIG-ASS TITTIES

 

CONVENTION; CONVICTION; CHECK THE DICTION

 

AND DON’T FORGET TO MENTION

 

THE DREAM, THE STRIVE, THE STYLE

 

THE LIFE, THE HIKE, THE BIKE, THE BLOCK, THE MILE

 

AND WE ARE THICK AS BRICKS

 

AND ONLY TWICE AS QUICK

 

LIKE A BAG OF TRICKS

 

HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS AMERICAN SCHTICK
