The walking asylum

Man him he swang in the sixties, big sixties them,
learned a library and stole away with it
shuddering in the single room all men inherit
if they spring wide-eyed at phantoms. Judge him,
slack and fallable, he said what a studious
student purchasing his palaver with common
insanity. Black beauties. The poor man me, I talked
back to the slanderer and said never lie about me.
I’m here for the medicine, you for the reverie.
