a gay poem richie with the jesusbeard stands outside the arch of planetrees / a flagpole / the world limping in skin tights assassinating the characters of westerns and co-workers. he sings quite well and one day the flat of his hand brushes by my leg     man alive he’s the man with the answers man of the house man about town man of the world man on the moon man in the manger he’s a man with mandibles a mandibular man he’s a man of his word his mantra he’s everyman / noman rich man / poor man“Alex Taylor”
