Tuesday poem #412 : Brandon Brown : MY FUNERAL



I guess that’s my last party
so I’ll do what I always do
at parties: bum too many smokes,
drink too much, stay too
late, talk too much, say
too much, cower in the
bathroom, hover on the
porch, hug everyone,
look terrific, disappear,
forget most of what I said,
smoked, drank, did,
sleep in the next morning,
write a text to the hosts
to say thank you for
that magnificent party
see you soon I hope



Brandon Brown's most recent books are Work (Atelos) and The Four Seasons (Wonder). He is a co-editor at Krupskaya and edits the zine Panda's Friend. He lives in El Cerrito, California.
