HAIR OF THE DOG SUTRA

It is said—the most generous 
and 

philanthropic 
of bards—knows not

only how to inhabit
deeply—

his own stubborn 
and unique brand of poetry,

but also—how difficult it can be 
to die selfishly

at just the right time—
as a sign 

onto you;
having seen 

and heard
and tasted—and imbibed

so much 
of the raw life

flowing 
in from outside—that he's certain

that true putrid selfishness—
is necessary

for success.
And furthermore—that death

takes a whole lot of 
practice

practically nightly; that is—if one
is actually

hoping he might—
continue 

to live
long enough to tell you 

guys all 
about it—over eggs in the morning.
