This is a very old poem . . .written sometime in the late 70's . . .when I was pursuing an acting career in my oh so fickle youth . . . I found a lot more than acting . . . this is one in a series of poems. I considered revising it, but it was so long ago I thought it best to leave it as is....


I've grown attached to Him.

The exceptionally tall wino who travels Vine St.
He is.

Catching Him on my first day. . . with the years 
Watching the minutes,
Finding it now in the moments,
The cancerous futility of His existence

He is

still cradling the necessity of his life.

I am

Watching as He loses height,
Pulled tightly from His gut
The body curls.

His invocation,
Spare change. Successfully numbling our eyes
As we look into display windows.

I am attracted
Using my imagination to straighten His shoulders,
Shaping His muscles into tight blue-jeans.

God, why do I need to be His witness?

He is.
That He stalked Vine St.
That the tourists on Hollywood Blvd. made way for Him,
As He pissed privately on the stars.
