Loading Mercury With A Pitchfork

Suddenly, I am obsessed with Richard Brautigan's poetry. Here are a few really great reasons why:

"Two Guys Get Out of a Car"

Two guys get out of a car.
They stand beside it. They
don't know what else to do.


I wonder if eight-four-year-old Colonel Sanders
ever gets tired of travelling all around America
talking about fried chicken.

"They Are Really Having Fun"

They are really having fun,
drinking glasses of wine
and talking about things
that they like.


I talked a good hello
but she talked an even
better good-bye.

Oh, Brautigan. Glad to hear you're getting into his poetry. I'm rereading him again.

Touching your head.
