Selected Poems

Go dear


Steve Timm

 

And then there's
see how I did that
Baggy Begga a real omniginal
fancies gaze presence presence participation
may the trains ever meet
o beliss
o lossed
o fragilent directo
live from the Bekaa Valley
it's the so long as the Russians put it
fool as the Japanese say it
cow as the Spanish have it
show
syllables dear syllables
o my backer
cries baga Baggy
Begga never can say baka
a cow to the nth
would never feel as vanished
love,
Brenda Vaccaro
