'bout penises of Shiva
something like that -
singleh women growing dreadlocks
like my matted hair
they remain celebate
I'm working on it.
I knew New York
would be slush bound
not fluff snow like philly
but two days old,
the bane of amateur shoes.
A two hour train ride from philly to new york on amtrack turned into five hours between me and the bathroom
no power lights out
lines to the cafe car
a run on beer
I met Gerry
one of those folks
with their eyes open a little too wide
he noticed my typewriting in my notebook
I ask him to write:Funny guy w/ funny career - sells antiquehe's the most diverse textile dealer in the world
fabrics to the world for fun + profit.
paranoid about $3000 worth of trashbagged
2 pairs cut velvet portiers double sided green and burgundy 10 feet long, circa 1900.
arrived New York,
two hours late for dinner,
I could only spend twn minutes
in his apartment
do chicks dig this?
Everyone digs it. two room studio
with separate kitchen
teeming with textiles
eighteenth century allegorical tapestries
elaborate brocade vest from the 1700s
stained glass windows and door between
dark wood ornate heavy bed 1880s
above, commissoioned paintings of luminescent nudes
rich tassels with berry sized adornments
I took a picture
of Gerry and his stuff
I need a digital camera.
