A Poem from 1968, Revised by the Ghost of Richard Brautigan, 2004 (twenty-fifth in a series)

Adrenalin Mother

Adrenalin Mother,

with your dress of comets

and shoes of swift bird wings

and shadow of jumping fish,

thank you for touching,

understanding and loving my life.

Without you, I am dead would probably end up like Michael Moore,

[rolling through life in huge mayonnaise-stained sweatpants,

eating Drake’s coffee cakes

and ricotta cheese by the tubful

with a very large spoon.]
