Like Dead Trout

when it rains
trash floats
from upstream
belly up
like dead trout

I am a streetcorner
brautigan in berkley
& haight handing
out poetry
for free

a big brass band
in Bolinas
I will leave
my key
on the desk
beside a wine-stained
copy of Zen Concrete

checking out
of this
beat motel
without a word
to my name
