Written in Albuquerque (Mesa SE), July 2002: addressed to Sari Krosinsky, shortly after we hooked up for the first time and after ze read me a poem in the form of a personal ad where one of the desired activities was “saving the world.” Published in my books If I Could Be the Stone and Wings of the Gray Moon, and in the local zine Central Avenue.
to an activist, from an inactivist
it’s hard enough
keeping this room clean
i completely forget
to save the world
