out of the ark-hives: for ry

[one down]

hot Africans dating site,
“Oriental” women want to know you while
live nude girls on lee treviño
that’s big lee, bigger than
you or me
bigger than his putting daze
bigger than his morrow
bigger than his guaca—mole
bigger than his april shower
bigger than his Mesopotamian sunset
bigger than his astral rhymes
bigger than his channel 9

i watched lee, i forgave the nudes:
it’s a big avenue—electric.
it cherishes moonbeams, while
the rest of the world cherishes tigers &
Giselle. I’m not counting
the forgiveness of sins: too many to count.
el paso needs a dead father, is screaming for one,
the avenue of trees.

(Perhaps a tiny bit of context. First time I drove through El Paso, a big billboard: Live Nude Girls on Lee Trevino. I assumed the avenue, but you never know.)

You're in fine form today Mr. Murat. I read it through without knowing the context. Definitely suggestive. The avenue, my eye.

Ms T: The billboard was certainly suggestive to me. Reminded me of an old Michael Franks song from his Burchfield Nines album:

I go downtown
to wrestle a live nude girl...

Probably at the intersection of Burchfield and Lee...
