inspired the poems:
After Will Nixon
I wanted to hide in the closet and light a smoke.
I wanted to defy Father Time and vanish
in the long shadow of the big clock.
I wanted to jump from the roof to safety
in the arms of my ex-lover Cherise.
I wanted to confess at the hem of a bewildered nun.
I wanted to be mocked by giggling girls
sipping martinis at the mirrored bar.
I wanted to be led away in handcuffs into the swirling lights.

due in courtship
holy bail bonds of matrimony
