Dead Man


Jim Jarmusch says his mother

used to drop him off downtown

to watch Revenge of the [Fiddler] Crab People

over and over.  I used to have nightmares about crabs.







Also about Lance Hendrickson.  He crushed a man’s skull

under his boot.  Billy Bob Thornton ate baked beans and farted.

Think of Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles.  Mel Brooks cracks me up.

I think of Thoreau saying the curse of trade corrupts

everything it touches, though you trade in

messages from heaven.

Television is an unblinking eye.

The constant mental rutting






keeps us from thinking.
