Seven of the Ten Poems Thomas L Vaultonburg Promised To Write On May 27, 20111


A Poem I Also Title "The Donner Party"
After an Evening of Reading Richard
Brautigan's Poetry

"What's for dinner?"

"You."

"No, I meant what's
For breakfast."

Avocation

since you never
had time
to behold
this particular
downspout
I went ahead
and did it
for you.


Be Careful

Closing the door
Behind you
The words
You longed for
All night
Ricocheted off the wall
And fell
In a dusty corner
Where thay can
Do no harm.


Day 12,562

The Cleveland Indians
Played well into the night
Against the Texas Rangers.

My game was cancelled.


Escalator

The old regard the
Escalator's efforts
With disdain.

No one meets them
At the top.


I'm Not
writing the poem
titled
"personae vitae"
no one
wanted it.


Jack

He wants to fly
To Jupiter

He starts by crashing
To Earth

Now he's
Got it.


December 12, 2012 update: Interesting to see these poems again. I had a lot more late night to work with when I first moved into this apartment. These were all poems inspired by Richard Brautigan and written in the same day just as an exercise to get myself writing. Also, I see there are only four poems here. Funny.
