SUMMIT


A meeting between two men
two views
two arms devoted to racing
two old land fills dumped in
office of boozing eagles
in bureau of carousing penguins
vodka of my hiccuping pencil
scotch of my vomiting eraser
and everything depends on
this day's drunken storm of prayer
this day's icebreaking calm at the
bottom of the summit of polyester pants
tonight in cloudy eyes of irritated marines
tomorrow in dead spot of the index
