“Ink in Middle Age”

Thanks to Richard Lopez for this poem, “Ink in Middle Age,” which he wrote in 2010

for jean vengua

drift thru the swift current like an anomaly of spirit

thinking yr tough begets the rough like watching enter the dragon

for the 15th time and just try to do a dropkick that pulls

you by the balls oh the comedy of age

tethered to an ipod the strut inspired by the cure’s ‘just like heaven’

—Richard Lopez
