After Watching "A Woman Under the Influence"

a very old poem...in honor of Peter Falk (wish I had a "Columbo" poem, but I don't..)

After Watching A Woman Under the Influence

Picket house fence
You are not crazy
“Just a little nervous”

Making funny noises with your face
— a Bronx cheer
allowing children to run around naked
in the white shafts of a 1976 afternoon

You are not crazy

(serving spaghetti to the crew)

Leave it

Leave it

Leave it all
and go smoke your damn cigarettes

(a Woman Under the Influence)
