Hoofed it. Got the peony grapes.

Last week? Busy. Got the Collected Berrigan, Dana Ward's The Wrong Tree. Got beer, churros, the new M.I.A. Dana played us Lil' Wayne, the Berkeley bar played us bad "jazz." The next bar smelled like fish. Learned facts about Dan Fisher, Nicoloff left for New York. Got the "buffalo wings," the scoop on Cincinnati, the Lab, they got the tonic, watched Christina Aguilera & James Brown. To the Presidio and clouds and gossip and tall cans. Had the orzo and lentils, the work week, the Black Panther news reel, the trash day, the morning adios. Smoked salt. Ball of Fire. Orientalism. And then the grapes.
