Mags Mental Contagion
peace to everybody
by Dean Pajevic

History Again

Bummed as money, as...
brittle leaf falling,
man shaving and cut,
skeleton birthdays,
Shakespeare's dry pen.

Sad as a porno tattoo, as...
a blast of cocaine before dialing,
liquor and Easter,
dead flies and pubic hairs,
mannequins between seasons.

Grieving as the sun before rising, as...
if it could revive me,
and this silence of history
is the Buddha before --
the world surprised.
