Poetry, Poetics, Po-business, Stuff Like That

July 23, 1932

Uncle Lester wasn’t really John Dillinger

and the deputy who threw  him out of the barber chair

onto the hair-strewn floor knew that too

or was pretty sure

but there was that one little hairline fracture of a doubt

and through it was glowing all the gold of Hollywood.
