2 Johns
   
In the 50s and 60s
there were the 2 MacDonalds
not talking eateries
these were what they used to call
hard-boiled Mystery writers


John D. and Ross

now John D. had started out
as John D.

and Ross had started out
as Kenneth Millar

but his wife took his name so
he took his father’s name
John Macdonald

now somebody
didn’t do a name check and there was
another writer named John D.
well Ds mother bought a stack of books
to give away as gifts and turns out
they were the wrong John’s books

well John agreed to slowly change his name
next book he’d be John Ross Macdonald
then eventually he’d drop
the John, he even threw in
a lower-case “d”

eventually you had
John D. MacDonald and Ross Macdonald.

Unfortunately, these days

we don’t have either one.

          The Dogs Are Shouting
  
The dogs are shouting at the night;
the night refuses
to answer their accusations.

At times, they grow still and silent
as the night itself, as though
awaiting

the handing down of judgment,
from the highest court
in the land.


And yes, though the night
looks judicial in black robes,
it refuses to commit,

and I cannot speak
for other men and women,
but I cannot bear their legislative

gridlock any longer;
I demand 8 hours
I can call justice of my own.

Love
  
I was walking the streets of a certain city,
and “LOVE” was written across
the bodies of all the young women,
and no one was afraid;
and the crows held tightly
to the ominous syllables
they normally scattered.


And young men actually smiled,
and wisdom
was broadcast both day and night;
and the pirates did not
pillage the streets
in angry tanks of despair.

And young women are forever capable
of saving the world.  Love
is their secret weapon.  Where
women go, love will follow.
