The Sum-Total Man

  Still in command
Accoutrements of both worlds
Another uniform

Blanket not rag
Fag at angle
Bowl not bad

The gaze the stance
Body-soul focus
The sum-total man

Man not messiah
Messiah of millennium
Advert to beggar takes nor gives alms

“Rush mini truck or two of bread/boiled rice to King’s Cross
Few bundles of biries don’t forget cigarettes for fastidious
More fills for my bowl…tell vintner flagons…copy flagons”

“…BP normal…my glasses…well to him who needed more
You balding…I’m not…eight is eight hours…That…Oh! That
On footpath below stars Apsara came we went over the moon”

He will die
When he dies
Won’t fade away
