POOR FREUD,

“Freud’s theory of sexuality was the half-truth with which he reconfigured his own traumas and anxiety.”

— Louis Breger, FREUD: DARKNESS IN THE MIDST OF VISION


walking home,
clips a cigar,
wants nothing much:
an evening’s peace,
some coke in the vein,
a postulate to chew on;
maybe he will finally
write that letter
to his father. But
they come again:
the boys like monkeys
chattering around him
waving handguns;
the girls bent over,
wiggling their asses.
Where to turn? How
To fly? They trample
him, a wet leaf
plastered to the century,
his flat, stern visage
trembling on the sidewalk
like a paper dollar.
