local, race car driver
from venice florida
long blond hair, raspy voice
used to write
knew the author of Black Beauty walter farley used to surf with his son.
he told me I should tape record myself
he's been doin' it for twenty years
got a suitcase full of tapes he hasn't listened to since he was 17
wanna listen to 'em with me?
your kids is gonna love listenin' to those
yeah, if he has 'em hard not to, with beavers like these around he sticks a finger in cathie's crotch and wolf-whistles in fucking-time.
he was lookin' out for me
he warned other folks that I was alright to be writin'
and he warned me to
wear a head gasket,
we wuz playin'
makin' animal noises at the ladiesI asked him to write in my notebook,
he wrote his name:
Edward Archie Evett Jr.
and his phone number
peace on earth. he said,
call me sometime,
I'll take you to an island
where you can relax and get some writing done
I thought that was daytona.
