Enrichissez Vous

by Peter Klappert

I’m not suicidal but I think
why not give it a
try get rich buy everything you need stock
market PR running an office
you’d make a great
demagogue if only you’d pull your
mind down over the welt
think about the cost of
living after all you’ve been
eating food all your life never
had any job you wanted in 40 yrs
you too can look like Paul
Harvey Harry
Reasoner Billy Graham probably
felt the same way once and Christ
he looks like God with his mouth open


Yale Series Winner Peter Klappert is currently working on a long poem about Matthew O’Connor, a character in Djuna Barnes’ novel, Nightwood. (Spring 1975)
