Reading MCGOON’S LAST BOOK
must have made you realize you picked
a good place to move to for Owen and Balder
in high school and junior high. Yes. Near
Potter and Suzette. The uncle and common-law
aunt-in-law. Nigger blues and bluegrass and
old-time country music. Owen could fish with
Potter and Slim and Balder could play with Net Ban’d
at Fermentations. Live in a trailer with Kyle Ogle
in Grayton Beach. Play at The Red Bar.
Become Dread Clampitt. The Saunders Brothers.
Jump, mullet, jump.
A Carhartt coat and an S-137 oyster knife.
Pretty Michelle and Mack. Mack getting run over
tailgating a station wagon. He lives in Maui now.
I think he works in lawn maintenance
and surfs to his heart’s content.
What happens to surfers?
What happens to surfer’s fathers?
They just keep writing through the storms.
It was a dark and stormy night.
George Bush at Yale.
Went out for cheerleader.
