To Mike Douglas and Nick Cage, two American actors who play “maleness” from the brain and heart. Esp. Mr. Douglas in A Solitary Man and Mr Cage in Leaving Las Vegas

Thinking of my father on the Gothic Line,
Drinking another glass of this stinking wine,
I double down again at the roulette table
My hotel room smells like a stable.

They were pinned down, but he stood up
I wonder whether I’ll get thrown out if I throw up.

And thus my liquid siftings stain
Coriolanus’ stiff dishonored shroud
Oh come see the boiling cloud.
