a short response to your question:

instructions

i want to not want
others' belongings:

the neighbor’s desk
the day after Labor Day,
his red Corvette,
its removable top,
its gearshifts driving
his wife to restaurants,
white tablecloths, white wine,
two glasses, candlelight

a piano tune played
with only black keys

flat wound guitar strings,
taut fingers, the plucking,
a song to sing, someone
with whom to sing

a Napoleonic island,
my one good hand

nailed to a pen,
volumes of white paper,
an ocean, two ears to hear
only those sounds
which interest me

and a soft voice to say

"talk to me, baby"
