Got a Haircut today.

I sit on the dock for a haircut and watch

as summer spreads out, relieving the general,

indiscriminate gray, like a mouthful of gin

spreading out through the capillaries

of my brain, etherizing everything

it is too painful to think or say,

as I dangle my feet in the water,

like bits of a man. On the goldenrod,

Japanese beetles are holding an orgy.

The green snake throws off its enameled skin.

And somewhere – invisible as the avenues

of the dead – a little door is left open for love,

pushing and pulling at each of us, as the water

pushes and pulls at my young gray hairs.

Carpe Diem
