Better Still (1998)

By James Moats in Greensboro, NC

grunged out today
in last night's clothes
unbathed and unshaven
caring not that it shows

cluttered house
and crusted eyes
trying to shake the most
promising of replies

but here it comes
another desperate call
the subject's reflex
is another desperate stall

tell me a story
and speak to me in trust
show me creativity
and show me if you must

uninvited
and unaware of these things
a living tree
would never show it's rings

and that's what this is all about
an ornamental flaw
a family's disgrace
a preconstructed wall
