Borderland


“Check for ticks” they said

I never knew, never saw a tick in the Yukon

Stolzenhagen,

Germany (but almost Poland)

You could walk there

So close, just a Condor away

So far, a lifetime away

come to Germany to find your freak

phony?

artist?

3 weeks on a commune

What was I doing here?

uncomfortable,

dancing,

political body.

They made room here

for the charlatans and the ticks

lots of bullshit too

but the best sauna

European-naked…

 the greatest.
