Chicagoetry: I Know I Am About To Be Looking Good

I KNOW I AM ABOUT TO BE LOOKING GOOD

People: dig
me.

Farmer's Tan
approaching August

Apex, I'm thinking late
next week.

I fucked up
a self-haircut

last Monday night
and had to

shave my head. Hogan
says I

look younger.
Just got out

of the North Avenue
midday sun, O

thus I shall
shine!

Like the red
grass and black

whores
of Mars!

Ditched my car
six months

ago, lost
twenty fuckin'

pounds.
Boom.

And there's chatter
in The Industry

that I might
have

a book
deal! Shit!

I smell
MONEY!

And the winter
drinking

weight!
O Dig me

soon, then I'll try
not

to shine
too bright,

now.
