"We call everything a river here."
                    --Richard Brautigan


there's a love parade
this sunday
beautiful blue and white houses
spill children into the street
like beads of happy colored glass--
music all over.

the trees are spring,
fall, and summer,
apricot angels
green yellow maples
all love people
two moons to a face
I think of a quiet
pebbled stream in this moonlight
and a younger woman,
like a single brush of ink,
dipping softly,
as the pebbled stream dips,
into winter, or untimed wild.

Nice work. I got hooked on Richard Brautigan in 1970 when I found "The Pill versus The Springhill Mine Disaster" in a Washington D.C. bookstore. I thought, "this is the way poetry should be written". But after 60 or so tries, I never came close. You do him justice my friend. Congrats!

High praise!

From the man himself:

HEY! THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT


                        For Jeff Sheppard

No publication
No money
No star
No fuck

      A friend came over to the house
a few days ago and read one of my poems.
He came back today and asked to read the
same poem over again. After he finished
reading it, he said, “It makes me want
      to write poetry.”

That might be because you were copying and pasting the same comment everywhere, like you've done with this one. That is a form of spam. ;P
