Poetry #509
(published October 21, 2010)
For You (After Catullus 1)
by Arthur D. Casciato
To whom address, which brand affix,
Whose name to slap on such as this,
How curry favor with words so libelous,
My slim-slimey miscellany hot off the press,
Of hates, a broiled heart, and nothing great,
Poor angry thing, whom do I connect you with?
One of those lovely souls who put up with me?
I don't think so, not this. I know, time's up,
Shit or get off the pot, dedicate or defecate, okay:
For you, yes, YOU, you there on my fingertip.

Arthur D. Casciato writes from New Jersey.
