you are all invited to the signing
of my book. it will be
under the bridge
on the east side of town.
you are all invited to the reading
of my poem. it is
just like all the famous authors.
we will be inviting mr scotch
and mr whiskey. present will be
my good friend ralph with
an installation piece

and remember to buy a book
from my accomplished hand. remember
it once touched the hem of greatness
and the beneath of a bridge.
