Hugh Schwarz



from HOW DO YOU DO
following ‘IN THE DESERT’
by Stephen Crane

Hugh rode thru the desert
on his haunches

naming every object
he could see

mostly it was confectionery
wrappers which already
had pretty good names

he reckoned

Θ

Hugh wonders if
the hole in the
ozone layer

was a one-off offer
of transcendence

Θ

into the desert
went Hugh

on a starvation diet
trying to uncover
himself thru
autophagy

you are what
you eat

removing his clothes
he doubled over

& came into his own
mouth

he liked the taste
it was bitter
& foreign

Hugh learned
he was not
himself

Θ

Hugh wonders constantly

what is going on

with his penis




Hugh Schwarz is an amateur physician, part-time litterer, and hoarder. He lives in the Adelaide Hills yet has never felt further away from wine or God.
