2nd floor rear

James Griffin is a straight edge anarchist philosopher. He has been writing in small rooms for 25 years. Sometimes with hot water, sometimes without. James has haunted St. Louis, New York, Chicago, and Seattle. All of them have a Chinatown.

2nd floor rear

the television loudly
bites at my attention
the curve
of your body
under my hands
is 
louder still
simple and familiar
as a comic book
reread for the first time
in 10 years

the nervousness
of your laughter
is undemanding

the trash can wait 
till tomorrow
maybe the car will
start
in the morning
i'm tired of
police
and one more night
of violence, too
many sirens
calling out to me
the studied ease
of a bullet
