  1. one of Constantine Pantazonis’ last postings on poetry in b altimore

    that’s what I’m talking about

    i have just begun to write!
    forget the small crap
    i’m going for the big boys
    the heavy-hitters
    like poppers for breakfast
    disturbing shit, yet tastefully done
    in the manner to which you are accustomed
    with me, its always been the poem
    you meant nothing to me
    a carny sideshow i might stroll through on a wednesday evening
    looking for the big dog and cardboard pizza
    i was young – i didn’t know better
    but now, i eschew such matters
    leaving me more time to refine my shit
    and shoot for big boy country
    it’s what i like to refer to as strategy
    not a master plan like some teenage
    comic book action-figure crap
    but real poems about real people
    that may or may not exist
    that’s what I’m talking about
