PURCHASE THE DIGITAL COLLECTION (2013)
Billy Wilder (b. Samuel Wilder)
B. 6.22.06 Sucha, Galicia / D. 3.27.02 Beverly Hills
Orphaned punch line:
Get the tweezers!
Fresh on the scene.
Morning clouds mirrored in the gutters.
“Every job I’ve ever had”
(a woman walks into an employment agency; says)
“every job I’ve ever had I had to look up when Kristallnacht was.”
Label a vast quantity of envelopes!
Swish slash tinkle twinkle.
I stand as a warning.
The contempts I’ve bred in slabs of time like agar:
bands Boston entertainment professions
the skinny the fat
bearded Williamsburg breeding
are stacked and stored in a deep freeze too intermittent for health.
Leave it to me!
Ring ring: Is your beauty-mark running?
Get the push-broom; bring shovels.
The clouds in the gutters disperse as the polish slides off a million mirrors into the mud; the mud turns to brilliantine. The mud puddles snip the laces off your shoes.
