A Boat

by Richard Brautigan




O beautiful
was the werewolf
in his evil forest.
We took him
to the carnival
and he started
crying
when he saw
the Ferris wheel.
Electric
green and red tears
flowed down
his furry cheeks.
He looked
like a boat
out on the dark
water.

  1. Marvelous pairing of image and poem.

    Richard Brautigan...decades ago I walked into a small bookstore asking if they had The Abortion by Brautigan. The clerk had not a clue about this novel, and directed me over to the aisle holding medical books. I explained it wouldn't be in that section. (She later ordered the book for me. Oh, the old days before Amazon.com...)

  2. Oh gosh....I haven't read Brautigan in years. This brought back great memories of a wildly creative man.
