    poem on desire in a digital age #1

    an instant message
    we are both busy
    and so it is a short one
    this time
    at the finish
    at the finish
    she sends seven stars
    virtual kisses
    instead of her usual four
    i count them
    to be sure
    i am faint
    w/ her excess

    poor people gourmet

    it was
    poor people food
    nonna said
    stale bread
    an egg
    un po' di olio
    a little grated cheese
    leftover greens
    zuppa di pane
    one of my favorites
    2 yrs. ago
    new york magazine
    printed a recipe
    i wait to see
    yuppies will buy this one
    pay 10 bucks for a bowl
    like a slice of polenta
    4 leaves of arugula
