Henry Doyle: Wasteland Journals (excerpts)

I have a grave yard
Full of dead-broken down
They hide together in darkness

“Hey Joe you got a smoke?”
With a light she gives him that smile.
“How’s your war going, Joe?”
“Losing with a smile on,” he says.
“Still hiding behind Hadrian’s wall, hey?”
I find a half pack of stale smokes
behind some novels of
Bukowski’s drunken knowledge
look into the night with a smile
walk through the rains of January
Death isn’t lonely
In the downtown Eastside
People wait
for him
in long lines
I hide in my typewriter
