My self-summary
Looking back, nostalgia is my only regret.

On the alt dating site
the women's profiles pithily pronounce,
feminist or fuck off
and must love animals

Many of them list Bukowski
among the authors they admire
in the box for books

In my summary I say
I like funny stories and mysteries
about writers

Joyce loved his lover's farts;
Did Joyce start fights that Hemingway finished?
Did Hemingway ever meet Orwell?
Or was his gas too earnest?
Was it because his mother dressed him up in pigtails?

I wrote many clever things
to many clever profiles
responding with categorical
wit

One said that
What I'm Doing With My Life
was "chipping away at the old ego"
and I thought that so clever -
so clever I sent her my Id

Another gave me a surge
(her screen name
Ginger_Snap_666,
highlighting her redheadedness)
with this wire:
"Well, I'm more into Jung
than Freud." She was
making reference to my message,
which touted a T-shirt
made for a friend:
"Freud Loves MILFs,"
But with a heart symbol instead of love.
A shirt, a joke, of which I was proud,
until she peeled it like a carrot,
adding, "And Hemingway's a red flag."

I was so joyed to have a response
from this impish candy, I replied:
"Yes, that is me: pompous, didactic, arrogant
via compensating for something,
so pick you up at 8 pm on Friday?"

"Can you take a hint, Hemingway?"

"Hemingway could, but your man Bukowski
beat his wife and wrote cheerily about rape,
as if it was just horses dying at the race track;
See, he was too much of a Nice Guy for virtual dating."

This poem is dedicated to Eric, who had this experience his first week on OKcupid. These relationship people become single and they forget what it's like out here. Godspeed.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mass delusion, psychology, how I can't follow rules, existentialist literature, reason, ethics, institutions. Why a woman holding a child has to get all the way to the back of the streetcar, to me, before someone offers her a seat. How people can't debate an issue without accusing their opponent of some sort of thought crime or moral affliction, and how disagreement has become some sort of social crime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fantasizing about giving a tour of the contemporary world to a famous person from history. "So, you see, Mr. Hitler, this is called a computer. Let's google you and see how much the world appreciated your work. I warn you now, you may see some things said about you that aren't flattering. No, not just about the mustache."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no privacy instinct.
I am an information whore.
I am a regular whore.
Whores, really.
