I guess I should have listened to the package when it said “not designed for microwave preparation.”

My people have no skin colour,
Or language,
Or country…
My people don’t eat, we loiter
Scatting scatological.
Of music festivals: “Fucking intense/in tents”
“So sick there’s no cure”

mistakes/mis-takes/mistaeks (… “bar bar bar”!)

We thought we were Greeks,
     but really we were Romans, swilling

 spilling
blue wine on imported flooring.
 Pockets hiding Trojans.
 Swinging flesh around with feeling
:  dancers,
   brawlers,
   Courtesans,

backwards barbarians.
————————————————————————————-

"The word barbarian was used originally by the Greeks to refer to any non-Greek. The ancient Greek word βάρβαρος (bárbaros) meant “babbler.” To the Greek ear, someone who did not speak the Greek language babbled, producing the onomatopoeic sound “bar bar bar” which became bárbaros, and later barbaria in Latin.”

For my friend, who is grieving.

Sadness is a magnificent teacher
And often our first
- like mother’s to infants;
But when mother’s grow tiresome
We must not be afraid to leave them
And we can’t be at school forever.

When breath seems heavy,
Remember how substantial light is:

When winter catches on mornings made timid,
Remember the weightlessness of tea in hot water.

When the night seems ovetly long and wakeful,
Remember lamplight.

When days seem unremarkable
(truly, un-markable)
Smooth with the purposelessness
Of never-to-be-used paper
Or unscratched objects,
Remember the lines and grooves of faces by birthday cake candlelight.

When the nothingness knocks,
Remember the somethingness of the songs you love.

And indomitable spirit of Action Bronson.
