     for MDL

At first, the same old disintegrating memories

the significant details of his past, the you know

what I mean.  Not bad for a guy who made himself

out to be excessive, deeply irreplaceable,  the life

Of the party.  The plot is full of revelation.  The forest

remains unchanged.  He laments.  He sees God in a foot

note on sex and blood.  Americanism hangs in the closet

with a suit of old clothes, the green hill just a dream.

The morning sky has a trace of it where he prays.

In the clearing, the right word breaks out across the gap.
