EIGHT POEMS
AUDUN MORTENSEN

I'M GOING TO WATCH KOREAN MOVIES AND DRINK TWO CANS OF BEER FROM CENTRAL EUROPE AS SOON AS I'VE EMAILED YOU THIS

i'm alone in the apartment
i'm standing in the kitchen
i bought a bagel at whole foods yesterday
seems like it has been eaten by someone
i'm still standing in the kitchen
i'm opening the refrigerator
my face is inside the refrigerator
my lower back is hurting so bad


THE CABLE GUY (1996) WAS 'IN FACT' DIRECTED BY BEN STILLER

i was sitting on a bench in mccarren park last night
someone told me that lil wayne was in jail
seemed entertaining to scream 'inside job'
seemed out of context though
wish i could play/understand baseball
in order to appreciate it more


ACAI BERRY DIET EXPOSED

seems like i don't know where/what 'chelsea' is
there's a gallery called taxter & spengemann in 'chelsea' i think
i'm kind of curious about [etymology/genealogy re] 'spengemann'
is it 'insane' to scream 'what/where the hell is chelsea'


POT_LEAF.GIF

i saw mary-kate olsen riding a bike
across williamsburg bridge wearing 'oversized blazer'
seemed like a 'homage' to annie hall


LEARNING TO LOVE YOU MORE WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN

i walked into a bar in queens
doug heffernan lives in queens
i felt 'giddy' or something
an old man was standing on the stage
sounded like jazz
seemed 'lynchian'
someone made a comment re my moustache


BEST NEW MUSIC

seemed so hot this morning
29°c maybe
copied '°' from norwegian online weather service yr.no
wearing unwashed second hand t-shirt
smells 'lynchian'


'HAY FEVER'

in bed
mentally projecting 486" x 486" neon sign
of the face of the duane reade employee
who complimented my nasal spray
possibly due to its soothing aloe vera
just imagined a six feet tall nasal spray
standing in the whitney's 5th floor permanent collection
and i'm standing in front of it
with a 'hay fever grin' on my face


'FEVER RAY'

at some point
last night
in a social setting
dominated by 'loose males'
i tried to edit a poem
on my mobile
about 'fever ray'
kept typing 'hay fever'
and 'loose males'
