Grade A: to an activist, from an inactivist

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
