Four Saints and a Demon Chewing Tobacco

written by: Sergio A. Ortiz



These are the troubled times
of tortured folksongs,
before the last war
and I am no reincarnation
of Dylan Thomas.

This is when I and I get married,
age together, die in Montevideo,
before the last war
and rediscover the secret
of life

reincarnated as Allen Ginsberg
at the wake for Sal Paradise,
tobacco and Sunday paper in hand,
before the last war

I consider implants,
and reincarnate as Gertrude Stein
