...My soul would sing of metamorphoses,
But since, o gods, you were the source of these
bodies becoming other bodies, breathe
your breath into my book of changes.

Los Angeles @ 3:13, originally uploaded by levari.

"Los Angeles, come to me the way I came to you, my feet over your streets, you pretty town I loved you so much, you sad flower in the sand, you pretty town."

- John Fante, "Ask The Dust"


the subtle, quiet policy of scorched earth

Unroll our history and,
yes, it's true:
we have lost much country
in each other,
to each other;

more than can ever be
much less written down

(even if old Homer
was still around.)

Slashed and burned the landscape out mercilessly,

ripped the dogs from the porches
and the babies from their cribs
as we marched through,
no regrets/no remorse,

sometimes continue to,

(for this is all animals with our stripes
ever know how to do.)

But somehow,
through all our battered hands
and sutured, unbleachable selves;

through all these useless, no longer fitting feet
we have left in our wake

we have yet to surrender
an eye lash, a toe nail,
a bone, or a dawn

to any of them.
